If experience really is the best teacher then there’s a chance I know a few things. One thing I know is that advertising is a bit like religion in that it requires a similar passion and devotion—and even with the best data at your disposal—a leap of faith. I also know there’s nothing like witnessing the birth of a great idea and then watching what happens when it’s executed perfectly and sent out into the world to inspire people to connect with a brand in a fresh way. I’m always looking for the next opportunity to help bring to life the new, the unexpected, the thing that's never been done. If you're looking to make something great happen, I'd love to help.
