Hello. I am an Executive Creative Director at Zulu Alpha Kilo.
I have worked alongside many talented people in both Toronto, CAN, and London, UK, and have been a part of over 400 industry awards, including international recognition from Cannes, One Show, D&AD, Clios, and Webbys. Also, Ogilvy Canada won more Effie Canada effectiveness awards than any other agency during my time there.
I have been ranked amongst the top creatives in the country multiple times by Strategy magazine and have an MBA from the Rotman School of Management, University of Toronto. (Advertising is a business after all.)
Our Dove "Courage is Beautiful" campaign, celebrating front-line healthcare workers, launched in Canada and was adapted for 15 global markets, achieved 2 billion+ earned PR views, made the cover of NY Times, and was the most awarded Health & Beauty campaign in the world in 2020. It has also donated $5 million+ in badly-needed supplies to battle against COVID-19.
Currently shortlisted for Cannes Titanium Lion.
One Yellow and two Graphite D&AD Pencils in 2021.
Awarded 7 Clio Award trophies in 2021.
11 One Show Pencils in 2021. 4 gold. 4 silver. 3 bronze.
Two campaigns on Ad Age’s “Best of 2020” list.
Took the helm of Ogilvy creative department in 2017 and, in 2018, we won Cannes Lions on multiple campaigns – agency’s first in 10 years – and we won again in 2019. (There were no Lions in 2020. I am optimistic for a big 2021.)
Ogilvy Toronto named 2019 Effie Canada “Agency of the Year.”
Ogilvy Canada ranked 4th on 2019 Strategy Agency of the Year list, highest finish for Ogilvy in 12 years and 2nd highest ever. (WPP didn’t enter in 2020 due to COVID.)
Ogilvy Toronto named 4th most effective agency in North America by 2020 Effie Awards (only Canadian agency in Top 10).
