Howdy. I'm an experienced, multi-faceted creative professional (aka problem solver) in Victoria BC.
I mainly specialize in on-message video production (check out motionhouse.ca), but having spent a good chunk of my 20+ year career in ad agencies, publishing and design firms (as well as broadcast tv) I also provide experience-driven process management and leadership, creative direction, art direction, design and brand strategy expertise for agencies, other creatives and brands of all sizes.
My approach (hint: unique is where it's at).
If it's true that brands are unique, then so should be their messaging. In a crowded, noisy marketplace it's vital a brand's messaging speak directly to it's audience in that particular audience's vernacular. This "make it unique to make it count" ethos is the guiding principal I apply to everything I do, whatever the medium and regardless the scale of the brand or project.
A prompt and effective professional sloucher.
I pride myself on being an effective problem solver and a deliver-it-on-time-and-on-budget type of guy; and my ability to efficiently identify core problems and turn them into distilled, original solutions is my strongest professional quality – one which consistently translates to a positive bottom line.
I offer competitive rates, am professional, always travel-ready, an effective project and team leader, work well with creative teams and clients alike, and love developing and pushing my skills.
When not fighting bad posture at my desk, I play and record music, run and do triathlons, and dream of warm places on a near constant basis.
I'm seeking an associate or part-time creative/art director role, consulting contracts and/or meaningful long-term freelance contract partnerships.
