Los Cabos Reselfies
Go to a resort town in Mexico, hang out with celebrities, surprise people on Instagram and then win a Cannes Lion for all of that? Sure, I'm in.
This ran in the London Olympics opening ceremony. Whenever we presented it, someone in the room would cry. We used those tears to fill up that swimming pool (that last part is a lie).
Modern Family. Dark Shadows. Crunchy new product. The list of thanks in this one is long.
Apologies if you saw this commercial way too many times. The client was so happy he didn't have to pay residuals to talent (other than the VO by the awesome Will Arnett), they ran this for a good three years.
This one-time-art-director wrote and co-directed this commercial. Stop putting people in silos, people.
In the early 2000s, picture phones were lifesavers.
Mutual Musicians Foundation
This National Landmark could use all the help we can give. The help I can give is designing posters that look like jazz records.
Fifteen Second Lessons
The very first time Instagram was used for educational purposes. Plus now I can play Taylor Swift on the ukulele.
Kansas City Outlaws
The team had no recognizable names, so people would go to the games and cheer for the puck character we made up. I'm not kidding.
Just because there's no budget for photography, it doesn't mean a small-space newspaper ad can't end up featured on the Print Magazine Annual.
We won this pitch and then the client said, sorry, no budget. Would have been fun to shoot this one...
This ran on the CTA last year. I take bass guitar classes at Guitar Chicago and get to trade my marketing services for free lessons. Bartering — the way of the future!
Ever tried drinking a Coke without looking up? Impossible (come on, please don't say "with a straw").
The bucket list is now shorter: I now have my work IN A MUSEUM. Ok, so technically it's a poster I designed for a museum's exhibition, but it's on display inside the museum building SO YES IT DOES COUNT, MOM.
17 Syllables at a Time
Last year I lived in Japan and came back with a belly full of sushi, memory cards full of photos and notebooks full of haikus. Then turned all that into a book.
Monsters Dot Com
It started with a Second City sketch I wrote and then turned into my first foray into animation. Now it's screening at festivals all around the Americas.
