|Writing about yourself is probably one of the most difficult exercises one can undertake, I guess unless youve got an ego up to here, which I dont. So where to begin, well to start Ive spent over 15 years building and leading businesses in the digital marketing space. In 1999 I co-founded chemistri which became one of the top interactive agencies in North America, winning agency of the year in 2001 by Revolution Magazine and numerous awards including a Cannes Cyber-Lion, Gold Effie. Prior to chemistri I worked for 8 years in the Leo Burnett network growing from manager to EVP/director within the network.
At chemistri I led the strategic vision of the company and had day-to-day operational responsibilities for the client service, producer, strategy and finance practices. In addition to running the business I also led many of the new business pitches and was active in nearly all client relationships. Many of these clients are household names and most likely you saw chemistris work.
A partial list of clients include: Adidas, Altoids, Hallmark, IFIC (Kidnetic), Kelloggs, McDonalds, P&G, US Army, US Post Office and Walt Disney.
If youd like, visit my samples section to see examples of some of this work or better yet
ping me and we can discuss.
Three pieces of work Im especially proud of are (theres more but I thought Id better narrow it down for this writing): lauching the first tween online loyalty program, Eet and Ern for Kelloggs; re-launching the US Army Brand and GoArmy.com; and creating kidnetic.com to get kids active and promote better eating habits.
Being at Leo Burnett and running chemistri gave me the experience of working within a large agency, working directly with Burnett, Starcom and other network partners. I gained the direct operational experience of running a business and P&L responsibility while at the same time working on a larger scale then a stand-alone may have allowed.
