About me

I'm a writer and ad creative currently at FCB Inferno. I grew up in Los Angeles, spent half a decade in New York, and now live in London. I write ads by day and other things by night. To see some of my work, go to sarahlefkowith.com

I like to make charming, clever, and unexpected stuff. I'm consequently channel agnostic, though I've got soft spots for digital, film, social, experiential, and product/business innovation. But ideally, we're talking integrated, solutions that work for brands through and through.
