I do the same thing I've always done, except I do it at coffee shops, strange offices, in bed, at the park or wherever people want me. I work with a partner who makes the work good. His name is Dave Steinke. Check out our team site, and give us a try. We'll give you our best. Promise.

VP, Creative Director [2014-2017]
Associate Creative Director [2009-2014]
Most recently, I was Creative Director on Kraft Mac & Cheese, Velveeta and Lay's Kettle Cooked aside from helping out on other clients and new business.
For two years, I oversaw a sub-department of creatives (called the Post Office) who just work on social ideas. Everything from tweets to huge ideas that get people taking notice and sharing. Clients included: Best Buy, Domino's, Fruit of the Loom, Infiniti, Kraft Mac & Cheese and Velveeta.
Before that, I worked on projects across all media, creating integrated campaigns for clients including Applebee's, Best Buy, Bing, Domino's, Kraft Mac & Cheese, Microsoft, Old Navy, and Triscuit.

Creative Supervisor [1999-2000]
Copy Supervisor [1997-1999]
It's here where I cut my teeth on some of the most challenging stuff to write well. I learned the fundamentals from old pros from BBDO, DDB, and Wells Rich Greene who birthed "From A to Zinc," "Merrill Lynch is bullish on America" and Robitussin's "Dr. Mom."
While there, I wrote the world's first pharmaceutical TV spot with the list of horrible side effects (for Depo-Provera). Stuart Elliott wrote about it, the Wall Street journal called it mind-numbing, and I was on my way. I also worked on Alcon Vision Care and Pfizer products including Zyrtec and Bain de Soleil.

...and a few others I'm sure. I can look them up if you're really interested. I believe we should always strive for award-winning work that solves problems for clients. Sometimes judges recognize that, and sometimes they don't.
Time wasters and other sites I've made
I love t-shirts, but I have too many so I run a used t-shirt site on the side.

And yes, some people said yes.
