I’m a writer, husband, father, and scrambled eggs maker, not necessarily in that order. I have more than 20 years of experience in brand, copy, and creative direction. Currently, I’m the senior copywriter at Horizon Hobby, where among other things, I serve as the Managing Editor of Transmitter Magazine.

On the side, I write freelance for the Department of Intercollegiate Athletics at the University of Illinois. I’m an advocate of digital curation, Real Simple Syndication, and drinking vanilla-flavored iced coffee at all hours of the day.

My personal projects include the children’s book, Goodnight Princess, and the noir-tinged fumetti The Beautiful Kill. My latest book, Captured Ghosts, is coming soon.

I live and work in Champaign, Illinois with my beautiful and talented wife, Maria. We have three incredible daughters: Katie, Alia, and Brynne. The only other male in the household is Rocco, the cutest Teddy Bear dog in the world.

I am outnumbered.


Walt Whitman, often hailed as one of America’s greatest poets, left an indelible mark on the landscape of American literature with his magnum opus, Song of Myself.” Published in 1855 as part of his collection Leaves of Grass, this poem is a celebration of the self, a declaration of the interconnectedness of all beings, and a testament to the diversity of the human experience. The line, I am large, I contain multitudes,” serves as a profound revelation of Whitman’s belief in the vastness and complexity of the individual human spirit. He celebrates the capacity for growth, change, and renewal within each person, urging them to explore their inner multitudes without fear or shame. In 2024, I adopted a variation of the famous refrain as the name for my own collection of experiences, emotions, and contradictions.
