Thanks for visiting!
I appreciate your taking the time to get to know me and my work.
Here's my philosophy.
My role as a creative director is to be a friend to the customer. Not the customer as a clicker or a buyer or a like, but as a human being with hopes and worries, busy lives and needs. So give them something useful, entertaining or rewarding–that's how you win and keep a loyal customer. (Plus, it's just so much more fun to make things people can't resist!)
And my experience.
I've had the pleasure of working as an award-winning creative director/writer in the business of advertising, branding and cross-channel marketing for over 20 years. My employers have included global agencies like J. Walter Thompson, Wunderman and DDB, as well as specialty firms like Banyan Branch, WireStone and Little Big Brands. My clients have ranged from the well-known to startups, nonprofits and, of course, family and friends. I have served on the board of AAF Seattle, as creative director for the ADDY Awards and as an instructor at the School of Visual Concepts.
