As Creative Director for Life is Brewing in Franklin, TN, I spend a lot of time developing branding,  marketing, and strategy for craft beverages. Our current brands include Mantra Artisan Ales, Steel Barrel Brewing, Humulus Project, and Hop Springs.


I was raised in a creative family surrounded by music, theatre, photography, and film. After graduating high school in Okinawa, Japan, I returned to the United States and received a BA in Theatre Arts from Hastings College in Nebraska, with studies in communications and RTVF. I’m a Creative Leader with 20+ years of experience in ideation and implementation through branding, copywriting, producing, directing, editing, composing, designing.

I’m married to Amelia J. Moore, an incredibly talented photographer, and the father of two sons, Micah and Elliot, who are athletes and artists. While adopting our sons from Guatemala, Amelia and I witnessed the devastation of the country’s 36-year civil war. We couldn’t just adopt our sons and go on with our lives, so we founded a nonprofit called Athentikos that resolves conflict through creative arts. We produced two feature-length, international documentaries (Reparando & Becoming Fools), and developed a creative arts program called I Am Art that empowers at-risk youth.

The “greater story” drives me – the WHY behind the WHAT.

When I’m not working on Life Is Brewing or Athentikos, I’m often being creative in the kitchen. I love to cook but rarely follow recipes. Most of the time my culinary risks result in requested dishes but sometimes, they’re one-hit wonders. I also enjoy the art of home brewing beer with bold flavors to enjoy in company with others.
