About

I like dogs, tacos, traveling, staying home, and advertising.

Say hi. I'll say hi back. It'll be fun.

 

I love it all.

I love strategy. I love telling stories. I love a great piece of film more than life itself. I love when media is a part of the idea. That’s where the exciting opportunities are right now. I love a great tagline. I love make-it-fast-and-move-on social media content. I still love writing radio. I love the idea of “big data”—though I don’t think anyone agrees on what “big data” is yet. I love music. I love, love, love great design. I even love a good banner ad. It’s basically a digital billboard. I love working with smart passionate people. I love guiding young, hungry talent. Then getting out of their way. I love cutting through the bullshit. I love simple ideas.

I also love tacos.
