I consider myself incredibly lucky.
I get to dream up amazing ideas about what's possible for brands. Then I get to make them happen with a bunch of incredibly smart, super-talented people.
For roughly three decades, I've been lucky enough to craft and produce hundreds of integrated marketing campaigns, across every media channel, for some of the most well-known brands in the world.
As a passionate and motivated leader, I’m constantly striving to improve my craft, expand my skills, and find new opportunities to grow and be valuable to the people who hire me. Every project I've touched, for every brand I've worked on, has provided this growth and has taught me how to thrive in this insanely competitive, increasingly complex business of creative brand marketing.
I feel lucky because I wake up every day and still love what I do.
If I'm truly lucky, I'll get the chance to do it for you.
