About me

Some people get the brand/business/marketing side and some people get the entertainment side. I get, and do, both. My goal is to help create content that people seek out, not interrupt the stuff they seek out. Non-traditional work that makes brands famous, makes clients money and makes a difference in culture. I’m a Creative Director and Consultant but also a get-my-hands-dirty Writer too. Idea writer, commercial writer, screenwriter, web series writer, sketch comedy writer, songwriter and published author of a book based on my music tumblr. My work has garnered press from the pages of Variety to the front page of Reddit, from morning talk shows to the evening news. And my client partnerships have been more like extensions of their marketing departments. I’ve been fortunate enough to win most every major award including Cannes Lions, Effies, Clios, Communication Arts, AdAge’s #1 Viral Video, TBS's Funniest Commercial and Brandweek’s Best Marketing Idea of the Year. But I still feel like the best is yet to come...
