Hard-hitting interview with ThinkLA.

WINNER: Most Patriotic World Cup Fan, Team One Advertising

I'm a creative who started in banking and politics, moved to tech and social media, and now call advertising my home. I've written policy/propaganda for lobbyists, business and consumer content for tech start ups, and commercials and integrated campaigns for Fortune 500 companies. 

I've been nominated for 15 Cannes Lions, including nine in 2017. At Team One, my art director and I won the agency's SLASH award for employees of the year. I won a 2016 Digiday award (along with a large talented team) for Best Branded Content Channel, a 2015 Creative Media award, and the 2012 Barclays Global Marketing Excellence Award for Best Use of New Media. I I've also been fortunate enough to win a Society of Professional Journalist's award and two Hearst awards. To see the most important awards I've won, please see the photos on this page.

Actual ways in which coworkers and clients have described me and my work:

"Cultural juggernaut."

"That is honestly the best concept I've ever heard."

"I love your dog more than your work."

"Overrated."

"A joy."

"I almost smiled a little in my head, but only at that last bit."
