View Resume

If you've already looked at my work, you know I have a predilection for visual storytelling, satire and awkward comedy.

I'm also a culturally fluent, award-winning director, creative director and copywriter with 20+ years in advertising. I'm adept at fostering diverse teams of creatives, selling ideas to clients and directing large budget video productions. My work includes traditional and digital campaigns for the general market as well as the African American and Spanish-language segments and has been recognized by Cannes, Advertising Age, the American Advertising Awards and more.

If you haven't looked at my work yet, sorry for the spoilers.
