Howdy. I’m an Austin-based advertiser, politico, and arts enthusiast.

I was born in a small, dusty town in Far West Texas to a butcher and a librarian. I only eat poultry and prefer non-fiction.

A bit of what I’ve done: I am the founder and principal of the Department of Influence and created Longhorn Humor & Latino Humor.

I’ve been featured on C-SPAN, Al Jazeera, Washington Life, Minority Business Entrepreneur, PR Newswire, Latino Leaders, and a few more places.

Speaking engagements include The New York Times, SXSW, George Washington University, and The University of Texas.
