Thinker/Copywriter, Santa Monica, CA


I'm a native Texan who can teach you a thing or two about Tejano music, muscle cars, and fishing. When I'm not writing, you can find me cruising around in my 1986 Chevrolet pickup truck or at any good taco spot around town. I'm a self-proclaimed food critic who’s known for my hats, well-groomed beard and stories you’ll never get tired of hearing.

I'm an international award-winning senior copywriter with a successful and proven track record which has been beneficial to many Fortune 500 companies, such as Walmart, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, Samsung, Miller Lite and McDonald’s. My work for national and international brands in both General and Hispanic markets have earned me multiple awards.
