For the love of brands.
For the love of my clients.
For the love of brilliant thinkers.
My work has taken me from men's underwear drawers to convenience stores; from collaborations with pop stars to ethnographic research at bars; from the subtleties of financial planning to how people plan to build subs for lunch. And along the way, my work has given me the opportunity to explore so many fascinating nuances of humanity.
This is a sampling of just some of the brands with which I've had the honor of working, across virtually every discipline: integrated marketing, advertising, digital, content, social, events, retail, promotions, employee engagement, sponsorship, market research, measurement and more.
