I’m a Creative Director/Art Director with 15+ years of experience, currently employed at BBDO/NY as SVP, Senior Creative Director.
I’ve worked on many iconic brands, including GE, Visa, FedEx, Macy's, Acura, Starbucks, Microsoft, Google, Toyota, Lexus, KIND Bar, AT&T, Ford, LA Dodgers, Red Cross, Humana and American Family Insurance.
My work has been nominated for an Emmy for “Outstanding Commercial” and has been included in the permanent collection at the Museum of Modern Art In New York. Other honors include Cannes Lions, Art Directors Club, D&AD, The One Show, YouTube Ads of the Year, Clios and Communication Arts.
My current NY lifestyle was preceded by an up-bringing in the sunny, laidback vibes of California, where I developed a passion for the arts and music at an early age. When not creating stuff, I can be found playing the guitar or hanging out in Brooklyn with my wife, Karli and our new baby daughter, Charlotte.
