The world is full of fascinating problems waiting to be solved.
Art, music, hacking, and computer programming are my earliest childhood memories; I’ve dedicated my life to creating media, and inventing hardware and software to manipulate it.
Founder of XJ Music™ an entirely new AI-powered medium transforming the experience of music in shared spaces.
Founder of the solutions agency Aircraft™ to drive success in shared spaces with an exclusive AI powered sound to focus attention, boost productivity, enhance quality and safety, protect privacy, and excite the appetite for discovery and enjoyment.
I make art with the intention of pushing myself and others to explore new theoretical possibilities, and Outright Mental™ is my brand for that.
I’m also passionate about helping people in the realm of lifelong sustainable wellness, and Ontology Fitness™ is my brand for that.
Born and raised in Chicago, I moved to the east coast in 2002 to study at NYU Film & TV. While in school I helped classmates Josh Mond, Antonio Campos and Sean Durkin get Borderline Films off the ground, and left school to begin working in NYC.
Among over 200 projects in commercial media, I made a nationally-aired PSA for the U.S. Department of Justice getting Big Fuel started, a Nintendo Wii holiday takeover on YouTube, an interactive portal for David Blaine during his TV special Drowned Alive, and served tours of duty on campaigns for numerous clients.
I’ve been hired to create value for Chase, Nintendo, YouTube, Kraft, Hewlett Packard, Stetson, Dead Prez, Anheuser-Busch InBev, General Motors, AT&T, Freddie Mac, General Electric, AIG, Colgate-Palmolive, Proctor & Gamble, Samsung & Kitchen Brains.
