Lead creative team through the trenches and through all phases of a traditional, yet progressive advertising agency process. Guided concepts, crafted scripts and treatments, developed systems, shrugged at processes, directed commercials, took photos, wrote brand promises, prepared pitches, presented miracles, breathed sighs of relief, took zero prisoners, rendered motion studies, sketched storyboards, baked bread. Still breathing. Still smiling.
