Creative Director, Art Director, Teacher,
Amateur Photographer, and Occasional Wordsmith.
I love any communication that leaves you thinking — feeling as if you have been a part of it. Whether it's advertising, movies, blog posts, journalism, or a great book, I want to feel something. I have worked in advertising as an art/creative director for over 30 years, and have been fortunate enough to work for some of the most recognizable brands in the country, and with some amazingly talented collaborators.
No one can be an expert in everything, but if it requires thinking and a laptop I can pretty much do it. I create work in every category from video, to digital banners, to socially-driven campaigns.
If awards matter to you, I’ve won my share. Recognition from Communication Arts Advertising Annual, CANNES, ANDY, Hatch, The Clio Awards, The One Show, ADC, Print Magazine, Graphis, MITX, MIXX, Luerzer’s Archive, Forrester Groundswell, twice-nominated for a regional Emmy, and more.
I've had the good fortune of being a part of two Super Bowl commercials, one of which topped the USA Today AdMeter, and both spots have been named to separate top-five lists in the fifty-year history of Super Bowl advertising.
After three+ decades agency-side I am now a freelancer/brand consultant while also proudly serving as Professor of the Practice, Advertising at the Boston University College of Communication where I am working to help develop the next generation of creative minds.
The best thing I have ever done is have a family, and enjoy the success and failures of being a father, husband, and son. Life informs my work.
