Bobby is Partner/Chief Creative Officer at SS+K. Previously he spent five years at Mother, where he worked on Dell, JCPenney, Tanqueray, CNN, Target and Johnson & Johnson brands, including Bengay, K-Y and Rembrandt. He worked on the Target Fashion Spectacular which won a Gold Lion and was named by TED as “one of the ten ads worth spreading,” and Target’s Missoni effort, “Little Marina,” which was named Best In Show by the One Show. His CNN ad was read live on the air the day of the 2008 Presidential election. And his work on K-Y led to an increase in sales of EPT pregnancy tests.
Prior to Mother, Bobby worked at Ogilvy & Mather on Yahoo! and IBM, where he developed the ongoing multi-continent mid market campaign.
Bobby started his copywriting career at Wieden + Kennedy where he worked on ESPN, Sega and Brand Jordan. Highlights include having his first commercial directed by Albert Brooks, developing multiple rounds of Sports Center spots, launching ESPN’s first college network, ESPNU, and creating and developing Sega’s Beta-7 campaign, named by Advertising Age as “one of the best campaigns of the decade.”
His work has been honored by TED, the One Show, the Clios, including the Grand Clio, D&AD, Cannes, the Art Director’s Club, Advertising Age, Communication Arts, the Andy’s, and AICP.
He is a graduate of the University of Michigan, has written an unpublished novel, performed standup comedy and is currently taking banjo lessons. He loves television, Boston and Cleveland sports and celery.
