ABOUT THIS GUY...
I am a creative. I understand that advertising is about creative solutions to business problems.
I’m comfortable leading a team or being a right hand. I want to make really smart work with very nice people.
Over the past 10 years I have worked for traditional, digital, social, experiential and PR agencies. I’ve pitched and launched integrated campaigns for some really big and small brands.
I’m not super into titles but I’ve worked as a Creative Director, leading pitches, developing brand strategy, and overseeing all design.
I have also worked as an Associate Creative Director managing teams, incubating ideas and making the creative directors' life a little easier.
As an art director at GREY, I learned that a successful team starts from the top. I was lucky enough to work with seasoned vets who taught me how to sell work and how to turn around a few Americana brands.
