Los Angeles • Associate Creative Director/Copywriter
I blend untapped truths with a hearty mix of charm and guts.
Creative philosophy or approach
I screw around with pencils, pens, and keyboards for money. I bring big ideas. And stupid ideas. And fun ideas. Because big/stupid/fun ideas have to be smart. That gets me clients who get it—think Bud Light, Disney, and a billion or so more.
Recent work I’m proud of
IMG Academy | Everyone Starts Somewhere, Champions Start Here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q6W8kv0Tg7Y
There are countless top-tier programs grooming the next elite athlete. IMG Academy is one. My team created a run of spots and banner ads demonstrating the unimaginable efforts these kids put in before the league/s. I wrote everything, including the anthem above.

Recent work I admired
