For over two decades I've been working, teaching and leading creative for agencies, schools and clients like BBDO, J. Walter Thompson, GSD&M, the Creative Circus, Chipotle, Capitol One, At&t, Walgreens and more. My work has been featured in publications like Lurzer Archive, AdAge and Communication Arts, and recognized at shows such as Cannes, Clios, and Andys.
Seven years ago I helped establish the Austin, TX office for the San Diego based Vitro Agency. Since opening, I've been the lead Creative Director over all art direction and design. We've brought in new business, expanded accounts, and grown from a team of three to over twenty.
After a joining of our agencies, I am now a Creative Director for the Crispin Porter Bogusky, and ready to continue our success and growth.
More than ever Creative Directors need to be more than creative. Knowing just the right turn of phrase or design look is just a small part of the job. To effectively lead an account and the clients you must understand every aspect of the projects, the business, and the players involved in order to maximize creative opportunities. Often you still need to roll up your sleeves and do the work.
And if you want to maintain your sanity, a bit of humility and a healthy sense of humor go a long way.
