Along with a love for crafting the work, I pride myself in developing strategic, creative platforms to holistically brand clients and elevate them to a higher purpose. I've had the fortune of shaping some of the world's most iconic brands, most recently as Chief Creative Officer at Energy BBDO in Chicago.
I spent most of my career at Crispin Porter + Bogusky where I began as an art director, and worked my way up to ECD. Along the way, I helped develop some of their most iconic work, contributing to the MINI “Let’s Motor” launch and the Grand Prix-winning Ikea “Lamp” spot. For Burger King, I helped create both the Subservient Chicken and reincarnation of the King, as well as the Titanium Grand Prix-winning BK XBOX games. And more recently, I helped create Small Business Saturday for American Express, which won ten Cannes Lions, including two Grand Prix.
I have been honored to have received multiple “Best of Show” honors in virtually all of the industry’s award shows, including two of AdAge’s “Top Campaigns of the 21st Century,” and the One Show’s “Digital Idea of the Decade.” And in 2012 I was named one of the “Top ten Most Awarded Creative Directors” by Creativity Magazine. In addition, I have served as an awards show judge at Cannes, The One Show, D&AD, Clios and CA.
