Writing about myself is hard.

 

After all, I've spent the last 25 years writing about others. And I'm pretty good at it, too.

The highlights?

 

Growing lettuce on a billboard.

Inspiring teens girls to turn fridges into race cars.

Showing the world why touching is good.

Challenging would-be Green Berets to use brains as well as brawn.

Showing the mediocre skills of un-ninja-like ninjas.​

To name but a few.

That's the writer part.

But some of my proudest work moments have been as a creative director,
mentoring young creatives, and as a teacher, helping would-be creatives put their portfolios together.

I've also traveled the world teaching clients to be better clients, especially when it comes to writing briefs and developing strategy and evaluating creative.

When I'm not working, I like spending time with my wife and four daughters (that's me as seen by my four-year-old on the left). I love listening to music way too loud for a man of my age, reading 1940s American crime fiction, and fantasizing about wearing a fedora and spats to work one day.
