For the last three and a half years, I've been the Creative Director at Studiocom, Atlanta where I lead all the digital work for Kleenex and Viva.
As the digital AOR, if it involves Kleenex or Viva, we're doing it, and I'm leading it. Pitching/Presenting. Concepting. Design direction. Production. You get the idea.
I direct teams of associate creative directors, art directors, designers, writers, UX, motion graphics. A daily core team of 8. Up to 15 during the busiest times in offices across the country and international.
I'm also responsible for helping lead strategic planning for upcoming initiatives and long term market strategy on a 16 to 24 month lead time.
All with the direct purpose of concepting, selling and producing great work.
PRODUCTION EXPERIENCE APLENTY
I have been involved with the production of several hundred commercials and videos.
From the concepting, pitching, and writing, through the shoot, editing, recording sessions, graphics, music, etc, I know production at an incredibly detailed and intimate level.
With this, I’ve directed over a hundred TV commercials and video shoots for a variety of clients.
Over the past three years, I have spoken at conferences in front of groups of over 200 people. I find it fun and rewarding.
