Let’s talk shop in a bit. First, the fun stuff.
Over the past 11 years, I wrote and starred in an international rap commercial for Motorola, got stranded in a cable car in a Vietnamese jungle, learned how to play Aussie Rules Football (sort of), and at the Koala Music Festival in São Paulo, I was the breakdancing koala.
My adventures in advertising started in Sydney, Australia, interning as a writer on the digital team for the Australian National Basketball League. I then headed to Argentina to shoot some photos with the design shop, Furia in Buenos Aires to launch the premium Nike clothing line, Black Pack. From there it was off in São Paulo, Brazil, working with the greats at Ogilvy and David on Coke, Dove, Burger King and Playstation. Now, I'm back stateside in blustery Chicago at Leo Burnett working as a Creative Director for Samsung Mobile Global.
