ADC Portfolio Night Montreal All-Star & ADC New York All-Star Week Winner

Two years, three cities, six (almost seven) agencies, eight creative directors, five art directors, and thirty-one clients. It’s been a journey. I’ve learned how to have fun with social, approach the manifesto, and ideate till I don’t think I have any more left in me, but then I do. I’ve also encountered downsizing, tough clients, partners who got back with their exes, and pitches that lasted several sleepless nights. You might think that I’ve had enough, but no, I want you to hit me with everything you’ve got.
