I am a Creative Director with an Art Direction and Design background. I love creating ideas that connect brands with culture. I am a passionate storyteller, an innovator, and always push to make work that authentically resonates with people.
Most recently I was an SVP Creative Director at Deutsch LA where I spent the past 5 years leading multi-disciplined creative campaigns for Target touching most every category of their business: Style, Back to College, Exclusive Artists, Licensing, Holiday and Health & Wellness. While there I pushed the boundaries of branded content and live advertising with campaigns like: Target + Gwen Stefani Live Music Video, Bullseye University: a living experiential Back to College catalogue, and Target Hijacks the Grammys with Imagine Dragons. My work in this space was recognized by both AdAge and Adweek for innovating creative trends in branded content and entertainment marketing.
Prior to that I worked at Chiat/Day LA where I worked on global campaigns for brands like Gatorade and Pepsi. Notably, while there I was part of the team behind the Pepsi Refresh Project, a first of its kind campaign for social good. Other brands I worked on while there include: Visa, Infiniti, The Grammy Awards, Activision, Lucky Jeans, Hillshire Farms, and Absolut.
Before that I have been at shops big and small across the country from LA, Miami and Boston, where I began as a young sailor at Arnold Worldwide working on Royal Caribbean.
I feel very fortunate to be able to do what I do. And I'm pretty sure if you've read this far I'd be lucky to meet you too.
