This is what happened in between.

I worked at Wieden + Kennedy on Nike, four years in Portland and two in the Amsterdam office, which I helped open. While in A’dam, I had a TV commercial for Nike, ‘The Wall’, chosen for inclusion in the Museum of Modern Art’s – Permanent Film & Video Collection.

Then six years at Leagas Delaney in London resurrecting the Adidas brand, traveling the world shooting film and photography with amazingly talented directors and photographers. Even slipped in and out of Cuba. Greg Hahn, Mike Smith and myself worked together for two years after opening Fallon’s LA Creative Office for David Lubars.

I became employee No.13 at Mcgarry Bowen in New York just a few months after they opened and spent nine years as an ECD running Reebok and the Brazilian beer, Brahma. Our team launched the Droid franchise for Verizon, which won Mcgarry the mobile phone business. We then won the network/brand business, giving the agency the entire account, which was the largest in the country. I returned to Leagas Delaney in London for two years as Head of Art working on premium luxury brands; Patek Phillipe watches, Bollinger Champagne House, Glenfiddich single malt, Penfolds Wines and the preeminent Swiss private bank, Pictet & Cie.

I am once again in New York.
