To drive people to participate we created out-of-home boards that at first glance depict a gun barrel or a bullet, but on second glance is revealed to be a speaker and audio jack.
This visual coincidence drives home the power of music as a weapon against gun violence.
An out of home board would keep track of the number of shootings happening vs the number of people adding their voice to fight gun violence.

SMART PEOPLE GET ESURANCE
Esurance has smart tools and real savings and if you're a smart person, it's the obvious choice.
These spots feature a smart person named Buster Posey of the SF Giants.
BMO HARRIS BANK
BMO Harris Bank was relatively new to the Midwest market, so we set out to make a campaign that helped define who they were. Literally.
"Beemo" with both Canadian and Midwest values is here to help everything in the banking world make a little bit more sense, in the friendliest way possible.
Thing I learned: Even "celebrity commercial-acting" cats do whatever they want.
The American Red Cross doesn't just want a donation. It wants everyone who helps to see they are having an impact.
With that mindset, we created the Wage Good app, where people could donate money, schedule volunteer time, or find local blood drives in an instant.
With blood donations, the app can even track where your blood goes, showing the direct impact of every drop.
The app keeps track of how often you donate, and sends timely reminders of when it thinks you're able to donate again.
Embassy Suites Hotels offers something that most family friendly hotels do not.

Thing I learned: Shooting in the same place you're sleeping makes for super weird dreams.
I married an english dude. Only for his extremely charming accent of course. Our backyard wedding carried an "english meets america" theme complete with tea and bluegrass music.
For the invitations, we created this image with our talented friend Clint Blowers to visualize our union. I also created custom buttons with our faces on them, because that's the kind of thing you do when you get married. You also hand make party poppers & center pieces.
BMO + HAWKS
BMO Harris Bank, proud sponsors and extremely loyal fans of the Chicago Blackhawks. So extreme, that they built an entire bank on an ice rink.
Thing I learned: Hockey players are normal size humans off the ice.
Parents who get the right shoes at the right price get to celebrate a victory of their own.
Thing I learned: You can make a room move apart with a couple of dollys and some extremely talented production designers.
Here lies a collection of my epic New Yorker Comic fails. They failed to impress the New Yorker, but they make me happy. There will surely be more to come in this collection.
That feeling in when your brand new client says "Hey we want a summer campaign!"..."OH... we don't have money to shoot, we'll need to use existing footage"..."OH and we need it in 2 weeks!" ... FAWESOME!
