This Seattle VP Creative Director began his writing career in Hong Kong where he gathered invaluable international experience, a few awards and what he considers most precious in life, a beautiful young family. Since then, he has split his time between Toronto and Vancouver. In those 15 years since returning to Canada, has created communication campaigns in every marketing category across every media imaginable including interactive, web, print, and TV.
Highlights in his career as a VP Creative Director include the following:
- Reversing annual double digit declines in Campbell Soup sales with the Cassie winning, five-year, Soup Opera campaign.
- Helping The Globe and Mail defeat The National Post in Canada’s newspaper wars.
- Creating a campaign for Wrigley Extra so successful that it was adopted for the US market – a first for the giant American marketer.
- Leading the Chrysler Canada account for four years and doing some of its best work during the company’s most tumultuous times.
- Helping The Coast Mental Health Association of BC address the stigma attached to mental illness – a cause that is particularly dear to this Creative Director.
What this VP Creative Director has learned over the years, around the world at agencies big and small, is that his job as an ad person is to inspire a conversation. It doesn’t matter if it’s the design of a business card or a million dollar, multi-media communications campaign, it must promote a dialogue about the brand.
This Canadian VP Creative Director is available and interested in opportunities within Seattle, Bellevue, and the Puget Sound region.
