At heart I am a geek. I love technology. What it does for us and how we can manipulate it to work for us. I’m also a creative guy who works in the advertising business on digital and integrated work: mass, print, interactive, eCRM, promotions. I have over 15 years experience as an an animator, an Art Director, and a Creative Director. I have built my career on pushing the limits, telling stories for brands in multiple categories and building award-winning communications with agencies large and small.
I’ve managed departments of more than 20 people and lead teams of one. I’ve worked as an art director, and a creative director, sometimes directly with clients and sometimes as a member of the big agency. What never changes is my approach. Do the best work possible that makes sense for the situation. I understand the technology and I speak the language. But even more so, I understand the value of great ideas, and how to make them work across multiple platforms, in multiple mediums with multiple touch points.
I am a creator and a story teller and I try to inspire others to do the same. I’m a leader and a strategic thinker. A team player, and a collaborator. And I’m simply passionate about what I do.
I love music, and photography. I try new experiences and I cherish the old ones. I like cameras, and cell phones, and I can get inside any gadget I get my hands on. And when I’m not doing all of that, I’m playing the bagpipes or the guitar, and here and there I find the time to restore an old car.
