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.
There was a time when picture phones were lifesavers.
A sweaty homage with a refreshing message.
I swear the junior team named the main character.
Everyone has a giant-megaphone-on-a-rooftop-in-Argentina campaign on their portfolio, right?
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.
The worst flight of my whole life happened on the way to presenting this ad. I ALMOST DIED FOR THIS AD.
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.
It's always cool when people email your client asking where they can buy their ads to hang in their Chicago apartment.
Fifteen Second Lessons
The very first time Instagram was used for educational purposes. Plus now I can play Taylor Swift on the ukulele.
I write and perform comedy in Chicago and all around the internets. Don't be weird, stop by sometime (unless you are weird, in which case keep to the online pieces, please)!
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 over the world.
