Hello. I'm Chris. When it comes to advertising, I love it all.
I love telling stories. I love strategy. I love well-crafted film more than life itself. 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.
Say hi. I'll say hi back. It'll be fun.
