Point of View

Advertising has dramatically changed and economic forces have opened up new ways of working. For those who are leveraging this evolution, understanding the power of their networks and relationships is a competitive advantage. That’s why my work begins and ends with doing right for people. My focus is to create a relationship greater than any contractual obligation. My partners are at the center of everything I do. I believe, if you’re the one helping solve your partner’s problems, this will make you invaluable. My creative mission is simple: work with good people who believe in creativity and do everything I can to help. The studio’s 3 tenets are:

1. Hit every deadline

2. Aim to overdeliver

3. Be fun to work with

Whether you’re a business launching a new product or an agency trying to win a new account my objective is to listen, collaborate and develop ideas that create value.

 
 

I’ve launched brands, products and campaigns for some of the world’s most influential brands.

My story starts in Milwaukee, WI and ends up in Boulder, CO. Between these two points I’ve had the opportunity to conspire with some of the world's most interesting people and influential organizations. I’ve made short films with Spike Lee, and I’ve tried to save the planet with Al Gore. My work has been praised by Jon Stewart and parodied on Saturday Night Live. I’ve spoken at the UN and to Mrs. Howard's 1st grade class. I’ve built creative departments, brand campaigns and Ikea dressers. I’ve helped grow a small agency into a larger one, along the way winning back to back small agency of the year awards. I’ve been fortunate to win Emmys, a Pencil, Lions and the love of Beth Armstrong. I’ve created work for Apple computers, Nike, Google and I can confidently say that the Tangle Town neighborhood garage sale committee is still the most challenging client ever. My creative mission is simple: find good people who believe in creativity and do everything I can to help. I’m looking to keep it simple. Find the value and communicate it well.
