I am a music lover & creator from Chicago:

I am the Director of Music at the Chicago advertising agency DDB, while also overseeing music for We Are Unlimited. Previously, I was a Senior Music Producer at Leo Burnett. I come from a live event and composition background, working at Jam Productions, Ravinia Festival, and Comma Music. 

Outside of work, it's still mostly all about music. I am a published music writer, primarily focusing on the intersection of music and larger cultural and social ideals. I have been in a number of bands, written, recorded, and released four solo records, and DJ under the moniker DJ Young Health. 


Everything Else:

I live in Logan Square, Chicago.

I am a co-founder of the Pam Stern Legacy of Hope Foundation, which is dedicated to raising funds and awareness for special needs children, as well as providing assistance, resources, and recognition to their families and teachers. 

My idea of peace comes from creating, and I want to make cool stuff with my time here on earth.
