I've always been an idea guy.
Making unique and conceptual communications not only wins shiny awards -- it wins engaged customers. But now, with 25+ years of experience as art director, creative director, and senior marketing management, I also find that I'm bullish on stocking my team with strong creative talent and solid client relationships.
I've worked for global brands and local start-ups. In every category from automotive to financial to apparel to technology. In big agencies and small. On the client side and as a partner in my own company. What I've learned in the process is that I love working with smart, passionate people as much as I love creating the work itself. Strategic teams, creative teams, sales teams, development teams, product teams. I'm most comfortable when I'm helping lead projects with people who want to roll up their sleeves, explore and invent, honor what's beautiful and inspiring, find meaningful ways to communicate -- and get results.
I hate when marketing sounds like marketing. I love taking strategic risks. And I love when I can use data to make the work better.
In my spare time, when I'm not answering requests from my friends & family for restaurant recommendations, you can usually find me taking in the latest documentary or wrestling with the New York Times crossword puzzle.
