I'm an advertising art director and I make stuff.
I'm currently at Grey where I work on AARP, Tums and Breathe Right. Before that I went all around America. And before that, while freelancing at Leo Burnett New York, I found out that I was really good at drawing animals from memory and now I paint a bunch of animals daily after work.
But these are projects I've done that don't revolve around animals, including some ads I've made.
In 2013, I went on a Kickstarter-funded, 50-state, 99-day road trip to learn why locals called their state home (mainly food). Then I made a bunch of posters, postcards and a couple books from my learnings.
Below is the video of the project and sample spreads from the book.
If your state isn't above, you can view all 51 posters at /home
Rockets Space Patches
I remember watching the Rockets win their first championship with my dad in 1994, because we had to order Pay-Per-View and my mom ordered us pizza and that was a huge deal. I've been a fan ever since and to celebrate their 49 seasons, I designed nine space patches for their nine hallmark seasons (because I also love NASA).
Emergen-C wanted to promote their new nighttime product, Emergen-Z, along side their regular orange powder.
I needed a way to keep detailed notes on my projects, but my regular notebook wouldn't suffice. Inspired by dentists' charts and notes (I used to be a dental assistant), I made my own.
In it, I can keep track of the project's color palettes and brushes, etc. This way, whenever I open up the Photoshop file at a later date, I'll know why I have so many inexplicable layers.
In 2017, through a new political climate, AARP needed a new campaign to help Americans remember AARP's humble beginnings and what they stand for.
Panadol Cold and Flu Commercials
A couple commercials for Panadol Cold & Flu that ran East and South Asia and the Middle East.
Flag of the World Pop-Up Book
In 2010, I was immobile from an ACL tear, so I watched a lot of World Cup and noticed how there were overlaps in flag designs. So I made this pop-up book to make sense of it all.
The Sports Calendar
I wanted to know when I could expect to tune back into SportsCenter after baseball season was over, so I designed this chart and made it into a clock that takes a year to make one full revolution.
