What’s a self-described city boy, foodie, and unabashed liberal doing in Birmingham, Alabama? The best work of my life.

I started my career pretty unglamorously - on the client side and then at a small Atlanta b-to-b agency. In 1997, I threw away my VP/ACD business cards to start over as a junior, with the goal of doing better work. During my reinvention I taught at Portfolio Center and Creative Circus and learned as much from my students as I taught them.

Great mentoring and the generous time of some of the country’s top CDs helped me rework my book, and I ended up at Boston’s Hill Holliday, where I learned what big agency life was like.

After that I freelanced in New York and Washington DC, at shops large and small, before coming back south to Lewis, a agency I had known through freelance in the 90s. Executionally, it was already one of the best places I’d ever seen; today I’m proud to have helped make the work smarter and more powerful.

Between my agency and I, we’ve been recognized by the One Show, Communication Arts, National Addys, Graphis, Archive, and others.

I’ll write about the culture clash of living in Birmingham, the adventures of transitioning an agency traditionally known for emotional craftsmanship to an era of digital utility, and whatever the heck else comes to mind.
