Over the past 25+ years I have gained extensive experience across all media in multiple marketing categories including travel and lifestyle (Windstar Cruises, Holland America Line, Chateau Ste Michelle, Majestic Cruise Line, Ixtapa-Zihuatanejo tourism, Glass Distillery), technology (Microsoft, Intel, Visio, etc), financial (Wells Fargo, South Umpqua Bank,
PacOne Bank), sports apparel and fashion accessories (Nike, basik 855), healthcare (seemingly every hospital in Los Angeles), and entertainment (Denver Film Society and
the Starz Denver International Film Festival).

A third of my career has been in brand and awareness advertising, a third in direct response and new media, and the last third bringing it all together in order to best engage clients’ audiences at the most relevant times.

WAX is a collective of strategy and creative professionals that, as a group, represent
the cross-media capabilities of a full-service agency and design firm. With backgrounds from DDB, Cole & Weber,

Ogilvy & Mather and Publicis to name a few, WAX can assemble teams to exactly meet the needs of clients or agencies. Like your dad always said, “you get what you pay for”. With no fancy conference rooms and employee gym memberships, we can cost-effectively meet challenges insuring our clients never pay for more than they need.
