I've collaborated with and managed a ton of amazing people throughout my career, conceiving, selling and producing award-winning work for some tough accounts, from financial services to femcare, from cars to canned pasta, many of them the number-one brands in their categories.
When not dedicating my life to building brands, I enjoy spending time with my wife Karen, daughter Ava and exquisite cat Ringo.
