+ _______________

I’ve been a writer, Creative Director, Global Creative Director and brand-side client to agency partners.
I’ve worked for agencies, owned my own, and led others both independent and in-house.

My experience in advertising has been as varied as the business itself.
I set out to be a great writer then set my sights on becoming the best advertising person I could be.

Because of that, my path has been a less conventional one.

I don’t have the D&AD Yellow Pencil I once coveted but I have learned more about HTML, CSS, Javascript and SEO than I ever imagined.

I like to solve big, complicated marketing problems and get hired by agencies and brands who have them.

I take the hard assignments because it’s rewarding to deliver great work on clients no one else believes is possible.
I took a special interest in strategy knowing that without a good one, great work was that much harder to achieve.
I view clients as allies and, when I became one, I saw my role as a champion helping lead our agency partners to success.

Outside of advertising, I enjoy film photography and learning the guitar.
I’m married with two teenage daughters who are smarter than me but I know more than they do.

Feel free to connect at or message me on LinkedIn.
Better yet, let’s work together to grow your brand and business.
