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 (including the first ever Titanium Lion), 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.
