An hour before a pitch at a client’s global HQ for their big US product launch, we learned that the creative director who was supposed to present the concepts, wasn’t coming.

There was no time to panic. Or cry. Or throw up.

So my art director partner and I cowboyed up and did the presentation. The agency won the account, and the team got a new and improved creative director.


Win-win-win.

I cast the guy who played Norman Wilson in The Wire for a holiday radio spot.

Amazing voice. Amazing guy in person. He graciously sat through endless script rewrites from the client while we were in the recording studio.

And if you were one of the 18 people who heard the spot, you’d totally do all your gift shopping at Newark Airport.


I did my first voice-over for an online CRM program. It was thirsty work. And later, got my heart broken over a television spot we pitched to the same client.

The ECD praised it for being “too emotional.”

The spot, not the VO.

I’ve been on Broadway in the role of a ginormous Times Square billboard.

But it closed after just two weeks.
