GEICO has come under attack by other car insurance companies claiming that while GEICO may have the lowest rates, they may not have the best service. To dispel this myth and put an end to the car insurance wars once and for all, we decided to let the public decide by using one of the most tried and true methods available. Presenting the world’s first car insurance taste test. We recruited over 500 random people off the street. The results were astounding. Of the hundreds of people who took part in a blind car insurance taste test, 100% of those surveyed preferred GEICO.

When Haiti was hit with the catastrophic magnitude 7.0 earthquake in 2010 I wanted to help out in some way. I illustrated the following and printed them onto 200 canvas tote bags. I sold these bags on the internet giving all proceeds to CARE, a leading humanitarian organization fighting global poverty. The bag sales were a success and the project was even featured on Glamour Magazine's site.
I had the pleasure of creating the very first advertising for LivingSocial. We launched the brand with a Super Bowl spot that was set to compete with Groupon's commercial. This rivalry created a lot of buzz, it was featured in Forbes, Wall Street Journal, and numerous AD blogs.
In it's 100th year, the American Cancer Society provokes new engagement by declaring their commitment to end cancer and finish the fight, once and for all.

Experts challenged the UN to intensify action against sexual violence in conflict. We needed to come up with a symbol to brand the effort and identify the "silent crime" of rape.
The global issue called for simplicity and universality to be understood across many countries/ languages/cultures. We needed to create a symbol that could be gestured and understood by everyone, everywhere.
The logo and gesture we created was introduced in March of 2007 at the UN headquarters. The mark of the initiative, clenched fists crossed in front of the chest, has become a global icon which is now used all over the world. Thousands have joined the movement by uploading images of themselves displaying the X gesture.
The Stop Rape Now gesture has since been endorsed by celebrities such as Mia Farrow, Charlize Theron, Heather Graham and Nicole Kidman. The mission continues to grow across the site, Facebook page, YouTube channel and Twitter feed.
Geico is famous for car insurance ads, but a lot of people don't know they also offer renters and homeowners insurance policies.
We needed to find a creative way to showcase different deals offered on the site (down to the savings percentages). So we choreographed 13 puppeteers (dressed as ninjas) to make things move and fly around. "Bed" and "Dinner," were each shot in just one take.

Pizza Hut asked for a refresh. So we developed something BIG. BIGGER.
We were asked to create a campaign to show the importance of public broadcasting. At the time, congress had just proposed eliminating all funding to public organizations like NPR and PBS, so it was up to us to remind people why they need it.
