After graduating with a degree in advertising, I said to myself, "I'll probably never go into advertising." For a while, I was right. I spent my 20's working as a singer/songwriter, recording, touring and (somehow) making a living.
After getting thoroughly burned out on music, I was ready for a new kind of creative career. With no ad experience whatsoever, I got a foot in the door as a junior traffic person at age 31. Then I became a broadcast producer, then a writer, then an ACD, then a Creative Director and ECD. I am currently serving as Chief Creative Officer at Morrison.
