As seen on TV
I’m a creative director, philosophy instructor, and father to three small children, two rescue pups, a Machiavellian bearded dragon, and a lop-eared rabbit named Juniper. So basically my entire life is about getting through to people who aren’t really listening.
Mostly I feel like an infomercial pitchman. Especially that one time.
But wait, there’s more!
I specialize in brand identity, brand campaigns, product marketing, and bold, compelling copy that drives response. I’ve helped brands like Ram Trucks, PayPal, Bai, Stonyfield, Baxter Brewing, Brookstone, Timberland, New Hampshire Tourism, the New Hampshire Lottery, and Southern New Hampshire University tell stories that stick (and sell).

That’s because by day, I’m a mild-mannered, in-house copy guy. But by night, I can be anything to almost anyone. Are you almost anyone? Operators are standing by.
In my extensive time off camera, I’ve been lucky enough to work with brands (and people) I really believe in:
I work with another Creative Director and a team of creative powerhouses to help deliver on SNHU’s mission to transform the lives of our students with more affordable, flexible and acheivable high-quality education. We do it through broadcast, print, digital, social, content, audio, and brand positioning and strategy. We’re a hell of a team.
I worked with 2 other ACDs to help deliver on SNHU’s mission to transform the lives of our students with more affordable, flexible and acheivable high-quality education. We do it through broadcast, print, digital, social, content, audio, and brand positioning and strategy.
I was the lead copywriter creating and executing concepts for print, social, and digital campaigns. Mainly for PayPal, Bai, Stonyfield, Baxter Brewing, Timberland, New Hampshire Tourism, and the New Hampshire Lottery to name just a few.
Banks, hospitals and breweries, oh my. Such is the life of a copywriter at a mid-size, independent New Hampshire marketing agency. I also did my fair share of CPG work for brands like Barbara’s, Brown Cow and Sweet Baby Ray’s.
Brookstone was all about fun, unexpected products that made life better in fun, unexpected ways. From Bluetooth speaker pillows to elastic shoelaces to robotic vacuum cleaners, I told stories for thousands of tech, home, outdoor and wellness products.
More than a decade ago a Copy Director named Paul Donovan took a chance on a guy with a philosophy degree and absolutely no copy experience. And the rest is history.
I worked with some of the largest publishing houses in the nation to manage editorial, copy, content, art, and all other aspects of university-level textbook production across all disciplines, but mostly in nursing, life sciences and the humanities. Spoiler alert: I was terrible at it.
Limited time, only
Anyone willing to battle a venomous water snake in a 100-foot deep Mexican sinkhole may not be around forever. Of course, the rest of my life is far less interesting. With the exception of the fact that my dog, Chance, has more Instagram followers than I do.
And perhaps these things:
MA – Philosophy
Boston College / 2008
BA – Philosophy
Saint Anselm College / 2004
- Philosophy Club President
- Chess Club President
- Lonergan Fellow
I’m also a super recognizer, but I’ve only been able to use it to create awkward interactions with strangers.
