Adjunct Faculty Directory
When I was ten, I won $50 in a school-band contest for selling the most bottles of cleaner called Drix.
I thought, “Hmmm, sell stuff and get paid. Not bad.” And here we are.
I’m a Group Creative Director/Senior Vice President at Cramer Krasselt in Chicago. I work on Porsche, Edward Jones, and the Alzheimer's Association. Before CK, I worked at a boutique agency called Leo Burnett, where I was creative lead on McDonald's, Morgan Stanley, Kellogg's and Coca-Cola. Besides being an adjunct at Loyola, I co-host the internationally-acclaimed podcast "So There!", and was on the creative team for Barack Obama’s historic 2008 presidential campaign.
No industry is as self-congratulatory as advertising, but what the hell, I’ll play the game: my work has been recognized by the One Show, CA Interactive, the FWA, the Webbys, the Effies, the Obies and the London International Film Festival. And that's just in the last few years.
I think of myself as a teller of brand truths on whatever screen the consumer happens to be paying attention to at the moment.
Thanks for reading my fascinating bio.
