Thanks for poking around.
Currently, I’m a CD at Innocean, popping back and forth between offices in Huntington Beach and Chicago. I took the reins of their Chicago office in 2014 after a decade of problem-solving, winning new business, and creating cross-platform ideas for agencies and CPG companies in Chicago, New York, and SoCal as a freelancer.
Before that? I was at DDB Chicago, where I was the writer behind ‘The Dell Dude’, a McDonalds International Ad of the Year, a random assortment of broadcast and interactive awards (there’s a Lion in there somewhere), and new business wins that included Dell and the Illinois Lottery.
And if you really want to dig deep, before DDB, I was a writer at UPSHOT… a gig that was bookended by two stints as a football player and an untold number of concussions.
Outside of brand work, I develop entertainment properties, try to be the coolest dad ever, and struggle with an irrational love for convertible trucks built by GM between 1969 and 1972.
My 8 year old daughter Raleigh and I split time between Chicago and Venice Beach.
