I love problems. Problems keep you honest. Problems don’t care about media, and they don’t care about awards. Sometimes, problems aren’t solved by advertising. I’m in the business of solving problems for brands.
Over the last 15 years, I’ve been lucky enough to solve all sorts of problems for all sorts of clients. Los Angeles Tourism & Convention Board. Samsung. Carnival. Netflix. Old Navy. Nike. Xbox. Johnnie Walker. I’ve worked for agencies, production companies and directly with clients. Throughout, one thing has become clear: the problem always dictates the solution. As a result, I’ve created everything from ad campaigns to digital platforms, films and stunts.
Along the way, my work has been honored by the One Show, the CLIOs, the Webby Awards and others. I was part of the team that produced Coca-Cola’s landmark “Happiness Factory” campaign, which won a Cannes Cyber Lion, and I also worked on the early viral hit (and perennial Super Bowl favorite) “Terry Tate, Office Linebacker” for Reebok.
When I’m not working, I’m perfecting being a dad and terrorizing my family with my accordion.
Have a problem that needs solving? Let’s talk.
I’m currently living the dream in Los Angeles, California.
