From his earliest years, Corey’s passions revolved around creative expression: drawing, playing music, acting in plays, writing comedy and always building things with his hands.  Before finishing his degree in Advertising Design from Arizona State, Corey took a year hiatus to play in a folk-rock band that toured Colorado. It was a post-graduate year at the Advertising Center in Los Angeles–-where teachers from LA’s best creative shops provided the mentoring that launched his career as an art director. Years later, Corey has two dusty boxes in his garage filled with ad awards, but will tell you his biggest accomplishment is his two kids.
