Small town Indiana —> BYU Provo —> Hill Holliday, Boston

Just moved to Boston literally 5 days ago and am so far from unpacked.* So for this photoshoot, I just went to CVS and bought random stuff and then found a hanger under my desk at work so I threw that in as well. Such is advertising: messy, random, interesting. But what other industry lets you think and write and ideate all day long? With no blazers or pantsuits; with the raddest people and abundant jokes? Welcome to Program 35. Happy summer.

This is why I’m here:

  • To make portfolio-worthy work.

  • To not take the wrong train home anymore

  • TO GET BETTER. make mistakes. fail. then succeed. learn.

  • To go for it. No one is a big success by playing it safe. The good ideas are the crazy ones.

  • To find the best clam chowder in Boston

  • To set the bar impossibly high for the future of Program 35


*Unlikely to ever unpack totally or might feel obligated to use my kitchen.
