I've been named Best Filmmaker in the Chicago Reader and have received a fair share of press from Chicagoist to WBEZ as an independent filmmaker. I've been the guest speaker for Creative Mornings and I'm the subject of several interviews on my brand. I create all the design elements and artwork for the brand side and I exhibit this work regularly.The art side has received it's own share of press, accolades and has a loyal following.
