Executive Creative Director at Ogilvy
New York, United States

About me

I bring out the best in brands through creativity.

Advertising has changed a lot over the past decade, but creativity is still at the heart of what we do. Because it’s only through creativity that brands connect with people emotionally. It’s a hack for getting attention and relevance, and no matter what, successful brands--whether building awareness or cultivating loyalty--will always need it.

A bit more about me. I currently lead a portfolio of accounts at Ogilvy USA’s flagship office in New York. I’ve previously held creative posts at digital agencies, entertainment companies, and independent agencies in Los Angeles, Austin, and New York. Along the way, I’ve done the work and led the work that have earned my teams and clients over 50 industry awards and has been covered in places like the New York Times, Ad Age, Adweek, and CNN.

Since I'm a writer by trade, I like working through ideas on the page and have written about creativity and the advertising industry for The Drum, Campaign, Adweek, Columbia Journalism Review and McSweeney’s, and I'm an associate member of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.

Thanks for stopping by. Industry networking welcomed.
