Who are you?
I'm a problem solver...whether a business barrier that needs crossing, a consumer that needs wowing, an experience that needs more cow-belling, a brand that needs re-imagining, or a product that needs more sex-appeal(ing)...I love the challenge!
So what exactly do you do?
I connect the lines between the dots that nobody else sees and dream up "big ideas" ...then I bring them to life with compelling stories and experiences.
But how do you do that?
So you're asking for the "secret sauce"? I can't tell you that. But what I can say is that "it" is all about building the right team (around a beautiful brand story)...and bringing the best out of them. That's where the magic happens. It's also where ideas become reality.
Who do you work with?
I work with exciting products and brands...translating marketing and create needs to teams who often speak different languages or don't generally speak to each other. I lead creative, technical, marketing and analytical experts to get the job done. The results are mind-blasting. I promise.
How long have you been at it?
Ever since I remember, but getting paid for it for well-over a decade.
What tools do you use?
Paper, pencil, asking "the right" questions and a whole lot of listening.
What irks you?
Not too many things, but I prefer to be surrounded with people that say what they mean and mean what they say. I also love people that are smarter than me, self-aware and always in pursuit of becoming a better version of themselves.Are you a west or east coast type of guy?
Definitely west coast. But, I'm proud to call Atlanta my home.
Star Wars or Star Trek?
What do you do for fun?
I love to live life. I DJ. I laugh. I play. I fail often. I give more cowbell when asked. I joke. And I do all this in the company good people. What's more fun than that?
What's the next "biggest thing"?
I have a few ideas and you'll usually find me tumbling, tweeting, facebooking, and pinning them in the digiverse or talking about it/doing it IRL.
