About

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

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

Hello. I'm Chris. When it comes to advertising, I love it all.

I love telling stories. I love well-crafted film more than life itself. I love strategy. I love make-it-fast-and-move-on social. I love when media is a part of the idea. I still love radio. I love ideas that start and end with data. I love finding the perfect piece of music. I love great design. I love proving naysayers wrong. I even love a good banner ad. 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 love advertising.

I also love tacos.
