I was born and raised in Akron, Ohio. I've lived in Chicago for eleven years and am an Associate Creative Director at Iris Worldwide. I pick guitar, snowboard, brew beer, could eat tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner, am a third generation namesake and recently welcomed the fourth. 

I strive to build relationships that go beyond the scope of any project and always look to take on new challenges in my career. Creating innovative, visually stunning and effective work drives my passion. To put it simply, I want to have fun doing great work with others who love what they do. Feel free to call me Kenny.
