Hey, I'm Keane.
I'm an award-winning advertising and marketing strategist with a decade-long career specializing in social & digital. I also have experience with traditional brand planning, and innovation consulting. I bring fire and tenacity to any project I'm a part of, attacking problems with passion and curiosity. I also have an insatiable desire to call bullshit.

Art, Design & Making Stuff
I've been an artist my whole life. I actually got into business school with an art portfolio. I'm most practices in graphic design, pen & ink, stenciling, traditional painting, film and woodworking.
I bring creation, and in particular design-thinking, into how I craft strategies, plans and visions for the teams and clients I work with.

Personal: Mostly Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. All hail the great A'tuin.
Travel to wherever I can. Anything with a board (with or without wheels). Anything with snow, mountains or trees. Or any combination thereof.
I also spend way too much time on Reddit and love playing League of Legends. I'm a support main btw.
