A fun little spot for the 2016-17 Phoenix Suns. We've all dreamt of playing like our heroes. Sometimes dreams come true.
Part of Chevy's national An American Revolution print campaign. This series was for their SUV line. Done while working at Campbell-Ewald.
One of the best parts of going to an NBA game is when the lights dim and the intro video comes on the jumbotron. I love watching how the crowd reacts at the Phoenix Suns Home Opener every season. Real fun projects to work on.
These spots were always fun to shoot. Our talent Pat Finn is a very funny human being. Pretty nice guy too. These usually faired well at the local award shows. in fact, the "Crush" spot won Best of Show and saw yours truly named Copywriter of the Year at the 2008 Phoenix Addys.
Business owners of all types have to deal with workers' compensation. And no matter what the business size, CopperPoint is there to help. Want a way to make workers' compensation more appealing to small businesses? May I suggest cute dogs.
Every year in Detroit they have the Woodward Dream Cruise. Gearheads and car guys of all sorts bring out their classic rides and cruise up and down Woodward Ave. Lots and lots of sheet metal and fun. This was one of a series of outdoor boards we did for the event. I think GM still sells prints of this ad on their company store.
The tagline was client dictated but we rolled up the sleeves and made what I think is pretty good creative. I wanted to do something that had a little snark and a little pride, which are two things you need these days to be a Phoenix Suns fan.
While at Doner I worked on the US Cellular account. At the time we were using Joan Cusack. This was a pretty cute holiday/free calls spot we put together.
The Valley Toyota Dealers were looking for some fun things to do with their sponsorship space at the US Airways Center. One execution involved creating a branded punching bag game complete with score-dependent remarks from our talent Pat Finn.
APS wanted to get the word out about rebate programs and energy tips. Armed with a recently redesigned logo and very little budget we put this series of animated spots together.
These guys were great clients. Liked good work and would usually find a way to get it produced. The "Hard Water?" outdoor board was an OBIE finalist, but alas, it brought home no hardware.
APS wanted to activate their sports sponsorships. We came up with the enerjis campaign as a lighthearted way to remind customers about the important role reliable energy plays in their daily lives. This campaign included OOH, in-arena video and display components, and even little Enerji plug covers that were handed out at sporting events.
This was the first TV spot I ever produced. Not bad for a Jr. Copywriter at the time. Another interesting fact, Chevy paid Rick James close to a half million dollars to license "Give it to me baby" for this gem. He passed away a few months later. Coincidence? You tell me.
As America ages, more and more people are finding they aren't prepared for retirement. Questions regarding your financial future can become overwhelming. Using that insight, we developed this first ever consumer-facing campaign for Annexes.
Ultirum LTO is a scalable data storage platform that uses tape cartridges. Now on their seventh iteration, we wanted to tout this latest installment's capacity and cost-efficiency advantages.
