A brief history.


I began my career at DDB, working on such prominent brands as Volkswagen, Michelin, Seiko and CIGNA. My partner Jeroen Bours and I created campaigns for Sheraton Hotels, Reuters and Bayer, along with the launch of Amtrak's Acela. And with composer Michael Levine, I wrote the lyrics for the Kit Kat jingle, Gimme A Break. (Seriously, you can look it up.)

Today, I am a Senior Partner/ Group Creative Director at Ogilvy & Mather NY where I've worked on some of the agency's most well known brands, including the launch of American Express OPEN. My partner KJ Bowen and I have created work for BP, Castrol, Fanta, Pfizer, Marsh, American Chemistry Council and TD Ameritrade.

I've been lucky to be honored with a Clio, One Show Award, Andy, Art Directors Club, Grand Obie, Gold Addy, Cannes Bronze Lion, a Gold Effie and amazing partners and clients.

I was proud to have created the advertising for the opening of the Museum of Jewish Heritage in NYC, and I am the author of Jazz Survivor, The Horn Player of Auschwitz published by Valentine Mitchell.
