Over the past decade, I have been the most consistently awarded, pitch winning and one of the most in-demand freelance copywriters in the United States. During this time, I've also been Lürzer Archive Magazine's #1 ranked U.S.-based copywriter, despite being a freelancer.
I was the writer with the most work selected in Graphis' 2019 & 2020 Advertising Annuals and the writer with the most work published in Communication Arts' 2016 & 2019 Advertising Annuals, including cover selection.
In 2017, my Aussie CD/art director partner Tim Green and I helped DDB Chicago win the only D&AD Yellow Pencil awarded to an agency not on either coast (and the first yellow in over 15 years since its Bud Light "Real Men of Genius" days) with our radio campaign for Skittles.
300+ awards including the aforementioned D&AD Yellow Pencil, One Show / One Show Design, One Screen Short Film Festival, Cannes, Communication Arts Advertising, Design, Interactive & Typography Annuals, Clio, Graphis Advertising & Design Annuals, AICP, Webbys, Radio Mercury Cash Prize Campaign Winner, Obie, FWA, FWA Mobile of the Day, Davey Awards Best of Mobile, National ADDYs, AIGA 365 (Denver Art Museum Permanent Archives), Type Director's Club, HOW, PRINT RDA, Applied Arts, Minneapolis Show (incl.
