I am going to let you in on a couple of little secrets.

My career goals as a kid included becoming a celebrity chef, a locomotive engineer and an architect as famous as Frank Lloyd-Wright. Obviously none of these directions panned out. But, what I learned along the way is that I really enjoy applying creativity to problem solving. And that's what led me to advertising's doorstep.

Over time, I have grasped some of advertising’s finer points – like the importance of a clear, simple idea; the stopping power of great visuals; how to be poetic but also to know when plain English is the better option; t̶h̶e̶ ̶n̶e̶c̶e̶s̶s̶i̶t̶y̶ ̶o̶f̶ editing; how collaboration can make ideas stronger; and most importantly, how to move people.
I am proud that my work has made people laugh, cry, share in outrage and open their hearts because emotions turn into purchases, stock price increases and occasionally – the messages I helped create being seen, spread and loved around the world.
I am unphased by hard work. I seek out great ideas. And, I'm always trying to break new ground even in familiar territory.
I have won some awards and I am will sure I will again. But you know what? The most rewarding part of the job is when you overhear strangers talking about something you worked on. To me, that means the work is working.
If any of this makes any sense, maybe it’s time you hit me up on LinkedIn.
