About me

I have some 35 years of experience in advertising, specifically as a creative director with an art director background. I graduated with a BFA in Graphic Design. I have worked at Chiat/Day, JWT, and Foote Cone & Belding on accounts from airlines to chainsaws, from donuts to automobiles. I spent much of my career at Campbell-Ewald advertising in Los Angeles, working on Farmers Insurance, the Thrive campaign for Kaiser Permanente, and Chevrolet. I’ve helped supervise a team of six art directors and writers plus a produce for several years on Vons. And helped supervise a team of four art directors, writers plus two producers and a project manager on Farmers. Work I’ve helped create has won awards from Effie’s to Clio’s to Obies, been included in CA Magazine and Archive Magazine, and is on permanent exhibit at MoMA in New York City.
