  • About
    After getting my start in "general" agencies, I transitioned to fully integrated work 8 years ago and haven't looked back.

    I'm currently Creative Director on all things fully integrated for Chandon, and all things digital for Dr Pepper, Snapple, 7UP, Mott's, and Jack Daniel's Tennessee Fire at Code and Theory in New York.

    I'm heavily involved in new business and a skilled presenter, being an active part of the new business team at every agency I've worked at. Hyper-organized and generally calm under pressure, I also take pride in my ability to smooth out processes, mentor and build teams.

    In the past year I have helped lead our team to 2 new business wins on global spirits brands, as well as help grow incremental business with our existing clients.

    My work has been recognized by the One Show, Communication Arts, Applied Arts, The Cassies (the Canadian Effies), The FWA, ADCC, LIAA and a host of other acronyms.

    Love ideas, and stories, and eavesdropping on the street. Love advertising. Love the rush of knowing you’ve got something good. Know that if it dies there's a better solution to be found. Love going with the flow of the changing landscape. Love presenting and meeting new people, even the difficult ones. Don’t love the L during rush hour.
