About me

Hello! I'm a New York-based Creative Director and writer. Although, people frequently ask me if I'm an Art Director. My visually-driven work for top brands like Nike, Swatch, Burger King and Cadbury, to name a few, has been awarded at some of the best advertising shows in the world. This includes Cannes, Eurobest, El Sol, Fiap, Epica and The One Show. Outside the world of marketing, I'm a surfer, cinema addict, consumer of art and avid traveler.
