Michael is the principal and a creative director with over 25+ years working across all media and in almost every category except cigarettes and cars. He does own a car, however. Specifically this includes travel and tourism,
wine and culinary, a myriad technology brands (who hasn’t worked on Microsoft in Seattle?) sports,
consumer electronics, cause marketing and healthcare. He is particularly interested in leveraging consumer insights, and on behalf of a brand, find ways to engage its audiences on their terms. As the consumer has become more in control of where and when they get their information, and who they consider credible,
this engagement is often about helping foster a conversation or telling a story.
