When you take 'Michael' and 'Ashley' and 'copywriter' and 'art director' and 'husband' and 'dad' and 'entreprenuer' and smoosh them all together, you get a mash.
I've been leading teams, departments, brands and agencies for more than two decades.
I've been fortunate to learn from and work with some of the best minds in the industry.
I've been a Creative Director at BBDO, Mullen, JWT, Arnika, and Digitas.
I have a Masters Degree in Advertising (sorry mom) from VCU's Brandcenter.
I ran my own creative think tank for 5 years.
By year #2, AdAge named it one of the 10 Best Creative Boutiques in America.
My work has been recognized at Cannes, the Clios, One Show, D&AD, Art Directors Club, the Webbys, Shorties, Eurobest, Effies, Communication Arts, and as part of the permanent collection at the MOMA.
I'm incredibly lucky to have a job that let's me do what I love.
And I'm especially fond of new adventures.

I've created award winning campaigns for some of the smartest brands on the planet.
I love making more than just an ad.
