As a result of a sublime night in a New York City bar, Stuart traversed the Pond from his native London, England, and settled with his wife in America. After a stint as a journalist in Colorado, Stuart joined the Omaha-based brand consultancy, dd|a, where he develops the firm’s business relationships and strategy, as well as advising clients on their brands.
