I’m an adman by trade, been going strong since 1994, but instead of helping make Super Bowl TV ads, which I first started out with, now I oversee Facebook pages, Twitter feeds, social communities and smartphone apps.
The photos depicted here (unless they’re reblogged) are all of my hand and eye, and copyrighted accordingly, but whenever I cite an ad, campaign or program I’ve been a part of, it should be clearly understood that I am always working as part of a larger team. And I’ve been fortunate to work with so many gifted players, the best in the business. The people are always the reason good work happens. Whether I wear the account, strategy, production, client, or even the occasional creative hat, there are always the lucky few with high visibility who get credit and ”face time” at agencies, and then there are the legions of talented, supporting players who really make it all happen.
Despite all the hats I’ve worn I’ve always been about the work, and the inspiration of great thinking - dreaming, pitching, producing, and watching the magic unspool.
Thankfully, throughout my career, big brands have always been the constant, and from Pepsi to Coke, from Lego to Monster.com, from FedEx to Smirnoff and Oreo to Guinness, I’ve been blessed to have worked with some of the most iconic.
17 years down the road, I realize how blessed and grateful I am for the amazing experiences, and “at least I’m enjoying the ride”.
