Hi. I'm a digital Creative Director and freelance Visual/UI/Motion Designer based in Toronto.

In a nutshell: I have extensive agency and production-side experience working with leading consumer brands including Chevy, Subaru, Ford, Mercedes-Benz, Nike, GAP, Banana Republic, Levi's, NBC/Today Show, American Express, Jack Daniels, Sapporo, Molson and Virgin.

I've also been fortunate to work with top creative agencies including Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Leo Burnett, BBDO (New York), Deutsch, GSD&M, Carmichael Lynch, CP+B, Pereira & O'Dell, mono and Team Detroit among others.

Although my client list is heavy on cars, beer/alcohol and apparel, I've touched lots of other categories along the way, including diapers (Huggies, if you must know).

But wait, there's more...

A lot of my experience is agency-side – in San Francisco as a Creative Director at big digital agencies like Organic and Digitas and in Toronto at Dentsu (among others). But I've also spent a fair amount of time running and creative-directoring digital production companies.

I've won a whole buncha awards along the way, including stuff from The Art Directors Club, The One Show, The New York Festivals, London International Advertising Awards, Webby Awards, Digital Marketing Awards, Adweek Icon Awards, Applied Arts, HOW Magazine, @d:tech World Awards, and the FWA.

Now I live in Toronto, where I help agencies and brands get digital work done, and done well.

About the work below – sometimes these things lived for a short time. Sometimes they depended on a host of other ridiculously intricate minutiae to work properly and broke if moved. But I usually have some pretty decent videos or stills that help tell the story. All stock music choices are mine, and mine alone.
