Creative Circus Alumnus – Art Direction & Graphic Design (2002)
Executive Creative Director, Principal at My Friend’s Nephew
Advice to the graduating class:
1. Where you work is less important than who you work for.
2. Your life should be bigger than selling peoples products and services. On your death bed, your greatest regrets will have nothing to do with kerning.
Advice to the Incoming Class:
Hold things loosely and don’t let Sylvia get under your skin. Even though she will.
What do I wish I knew while at Circus:
I wish I knew that Atlanta actually IS awesome. Clients are tougher than teachers.
What does Circus mean to me:
The Circus were two of the most intense years of my life and I can’t think of an environment that could have better prepared me for the crazy world of advertising and design.
Lightbulb moment for me while in school:
When Sylvia looked at my goat poster and asked, “Are you sure this is the right thing for you?” Fire lit. Thanks Sylvia.
