I’ve written ads for the United States, Canada, China, Germany, South Africa, the Middle East. I’m used to working across timezones.
I’m used to working on complicated, brain-busting accounts — and making them simple for consumers. I love to learn my clients’ businesses.
I know how to code. I know digital well enough to know what can be done and how to talk to the people who can make it happen.
I never write. I just transcribe the voice in my head. That either makes me a lunatic or a very good radio copywriter.
The difference between “less” and “fewer.” Bad kerning. Dumb quotes. These are the things that keep me up at night until I fix them.
I can draw some mean stick figures. Also happy stick figures and sad stick figures. Best of all, you can tell the difference.
Gastroenterology, French-Vietnamese fusion cuisine, parallel parking, football quarterbacking, forensic accounting, frisbee golf, the cello, piloting multi-engined aircraft, tomatoes, Charlton Heston impersonations, arranging countries by order of land mass, topiary and high-rise steelworking. But I’m willing to learn.
