If you're interested in what current/past colleagues think about working with me, you can read a few words here. You can also download my resume here

When I'm not working I'm likely chasing my two little boys, yelling at athletes on TV who can't hear me, watching Keith Moon clips on YouTube, devouring something with ketchup, reading anything I can find on Muhammad Ali or running a few miles on the Chicago lakefront. (more)


In June of 2018 I joined Wunderman to run the Chicago office. I'm now the President of the Wunderman Thompson (created by the merger of Wunderman + J. Walter Thompson) Central Region, looking after nearly 300 people in four offices (Chicago, Minneapolis, Memphis, Austin).

Before that I was the  Managing Director of SapientRazorfish Chicago where I looked after the business, human and cultural health of the office. I was also the architect and business lead for a world-class portfolio of brands, including CPG, insurance, retail, fashion, pharma and healthcare.

I'm particularly proud of my new business track-record; my passion for selling innovative ideas and solutions; the trust my clients put in me; and the joy I take in finding and developing talent.

I spent eight years at Ogilvy & Mather where I started an award-winning social media practice; and championed digital, mobile and social expertise across the agency. Prior to Ogilvy I was the global partnership lead for a division of Nokia.

Finally, I believe people are inherently decent. Let's not let each other down, ok?
