My sister and I defeat Super Mario Bros. 2 and then take a photo of it, as you do. Fun fact: I'm wearing a knock-off hyper color shirt in this photo. 

About

I began my ad career at the VCU Brandcenter, and interned at CP+B Boulder. When ECD Dave Schiff left there to found his own agency, Made, I joined him in those scrappy startup days. But the coast called, and my wife and I moved to San Francisco, where I joined a pair of ex-CPBers, Steve Babcock and Patrick Maravilla, at Evolution Bureau (EVB) in an effort to boost their TV/Video output.

My wife and I next moved to Portland, and I spent the next couple years focusing on personal writing while I freelanced at places like Droga5, Adidas, Instrument, and Fitzloff & Partners.

Now, we’re in LA, and I’m looking to get back into the TVC game. I love crafting scripts, and marshalling them through production, until we can share them with the world. I've written for brands of all sorts, including Coke Zero, Best Buy, American Express, Starbucks, Samsung, several cat and dog foods, several beers, and many more. Whether you're looking for insight-based humor or heart-stoking emotion, I can deliver, quickly and professionally. Thanks for reading. – DS
