The hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is write about myself. Anyway, here it goes….

You probably think I’m a bit of a neat freak. Well, you are correct. I find value in meticulous attention to detail. That’s why I continue to refine my ability to refine ideas. This practice often results in creations that include only the most powerful, essential elements. Communication is most effective when the idea is simple, but impactful.

Every brief requires a unique solution. That’s exactly why a one-size-fits-all solution benefits neither the client nor the creator. And just like a good idea, I’m not a one-size-fits-all person.

Corporate Frank is focused, driven, and never got girls in high school. Which is ironic because now he’s dapper enough to be a tanner Don Draper.

Cool Frank buys hats based on how they look backwards. He throws up gang signs not because he’s in a gang, but because he wants everyone to know he could be a rapper if he worked at it.

Creative Frank is a modern nerd that rocks skinny jeans and cozies up next to a good audiobook. He daydreams about cars that existed long before his day.

Like I said, the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do is write about myselves.
