Chris is a conceptual thinker with over 13 years experience in the advertising industry. During this time he has had the opportunity to work as an art director, copywriter and creative director on some of the worlds biggest brands in Australia and throughout Asia.
During his time in advertising, Chris has had the opportunity to work on many diverse projects and clients. His career has seen him develop a condition for problem gamblers, helping them self identify, use repetition priming and social media to sell women’s clothing and convince thousands of people to colour in frames of a short film. He’s excited by what shape and form the advertising of tomorrow will take as ideas, technology and the changing media landscape all merge.
Chris’ work has been recognised at both local and international award shows including the Effies, New York Festivals, LIA, Spikes, Adfest, Facebook and Communication Arts amongst others. This year his work was also showcased at the Sundance Film Festival as part of their branded storytelling event.
In addition to Chris’ advertising work, he also launched his own company globalhotshops.com, tutors junior creatives through the AWARD School program and has written articles for Digiday and AdNews. When he’s not making ads he likes to snowboard and run, sometimes as far as 42.2kms.
