Originally from Vancouver, B.C., I’m currently a Creative Director at Grey New York. I’ve spent my career exploring every way to tell a story, using everything from film content, to tech hacks, to stand-up comedy. I started out at a Canadian digital firm, before a love of comedy writing drew me to more traditional film & TV content in the US. I spent a few years immersing myself in the world of social media, acting as one of the creative leads on Burger King, collaborating with Y&R on the McWhopper campaign. I’ve worked on brands including E*Trade, TNT, Canon, Value City Furniture, Applebee’s, State Farm, The NFL, and YouTube. In 2017, I captained Grey’s team at the Cannes Lions Hackathon For Good, where we developed an Alexa skill to combat mental health issues in young people. My work has been recognized by Cannes Lions, D&AD, The One Show, AICP, The Clios and The Webbys and I’m a Cannes Lions See It Be It alumni.
