My portfolio is in the current language of GIF, but not many creative directors also know the dead language of Latin. My site URL borrows a song lyric from the time when I was on my high school Latin team. Even then, I had not only an ear for moody dance music but also the conviction that words were indeed not only necessary but precious.
Every one of these projects started, like a song lyric, with a couple of words on a blank page. I have never lost the thrill for that terrifying starting point, nor love for the craft of bringing those words to life.
I have worked as a digital-centric writer and creative director at a few of the most prestigious agencies in New York. Even at a nascent time in the medium, I focused on ideas while embracing the shifting boundaries in digital. Over time, those loose parameters, emerging technologies and meager budgets helped me hone a sense of inventive resourcefulness for my work. Now, at a time when digital thinking infuses every extension of brand advertising, I am lucky enough to be the overall creative lead for some of the best brands in the world.
