I started my career in advertising at DDB Canada, where I worked on a range of award-winning campaigns that helped sell vaginal lube to older women, as well as bring awareness to single moms living in poverty (those were two separate campaigns, by the way). From there I spread my wings just far enough to land at another Omnicom agency, BBDO Toronto, where I currently work on clients like Pepsi, Paralympics Canada, and RBC.
My work has been recognized at D&AD, The One Show, Cannes, The London International Awards, the New York Festival, the ADCCs, the Cassies, the Marketing Awards, and most notably on my mother's fridge, where she proudly displays any media coverage my campaigns receive. She also called me to say she laughed out loud while reading my promotional book for the TV show iZombie: The Zombie's Guide to Surviving Among the Living. So yah, I have a mother and yes, she will gladly tell you about anything I've ever remotely accomplished much better than I could if you have 2-3 hours to chat.
