Over the years I’ve worked at big agencies in big cities, BRANN/EURO RSCG and Publicis. I’ve worked at small shops in the Midwest. And I’ve co-founded an agency at the beginning of a recession (2008 was a great year to start any business) then sold it six years later.

First and foremost, I love creative problem solving. Whether that’s helping HP figure out how to spend a $280 million ad budget, or developing a poster concept for The San Francisco Design Center that will wow jaded creative types.

My work has been recognized by industry award shows and publications including The One Show, Communication Arts, Advertising Age, The New York Festivals, The John Caples International Awards, The International ECHO Awards and The National ADDY Awards.

I’ve developed global campaigns for Microsoft, WebEx, Hewlett-Packard, Intel and Visa. And national campaigns for Sprint, United Airlines, Hallmark Cards, American Century Mutual funds, IMAX Theaters, and the Bermuda Board of Tourism.

On a personal note, I was raised by a shrink and a zookeeper in Kansas City, which many of my colleagues say, explains a lot.
