I have had the good fortune of working with more than 200 clients as a creative director and copywriter in New York and South Florida with experience across multiple channels including digital, print, broadcast, out-of-home, packaging and direct marketing.
I started my career as a copywriter in New York City working for accounts such as Men’s Wearhouse, Harry Winston, Tourneau, Movado, Jean Patou fragrances, Genesco and Michelin Tires.
I relocated to Miami where I co-founded Gold Coast Advertising with Robert Utsman. We helped grow the agency into an $80 million shop, the 3rd largest in South Florida. During that time we helped clients such as Office Depot grow from 3 stores into the largest retailer of office products in the world. My “Taking Care of Business” campaign was recognized as one of the best in the specialty retail by the National Retail Federation and the TCOB slogan lasted almost 20 years.
After closing Gold Coast Advertising in 2004, I joined Zimmerman Advertising (a $1.8 billion Omnicom agency) as Sr.VP-Creative Director with the responsibility of supervising four creative teams. In 2006, I left the 9 to 9 grind of the ad agency world and started freelancing in Metro New York and South Florida.
