ESPN+ “The Rick” - February 2019
Last year ESPN brought back “The Rick” to help promote the new paid streaming feature on the ESPN app. The campaign did so well they decided to bring it back again this year for another round of spots. With ESPN’s $1.5 billion dollar investment in the UFC, “The Rick” becomes a pseudo-spokesperson for ultimate fighting and the many other sports and content features of ESPN+, now serving over 2 million paid subscribers.
Los Angeles Clippers - “The Pre-Preseason” with Bobi + Tobi - September 2018
Fans and commentators around the NBA have enjoyed watching the friendship between Boban Marjanovic and Tobias Harris, both on-court and in the personal experiences they share online. We created a series of videos that began with righting a sad, yet humorous, moment for Boban at Soul Cycle. Like the NBA, this project was a fast turnaround. But I was able to deliver a concept, title, content and presentations to the players, team marketing and player agents nearly overnight. And the 6’9” and 7’1” players continued to entertain in their own awesome way.

ESPN - The return of “The Rick” May 2018
It’s great when a character you’ve created comes back to life again after many years. We shot about 100 spots with “The Rick” when I was at Ground Zero. ESPN recently brought him back to promote the new ESPN+ technology and programming on the revised ESPN app. I worked on a bunch of the new stuff, and some other fun things that might not air but made for time well spent. The experience of hearing once again “Hi my name is Rick, but everyone calls me The Rick” was one of those unexpected, sideways moments in life that I love. (I'm always up for working with characters. Digging into the voice and mining new directions is awesome.)

Tagline and social media campaign for the Warner Brothers movie, War Dogs.
To support the movie, we also created a social media campaign featuring wild postings that played on the ubiquitous "get rich working from home" flyers, which reflected part of the "hustle" storyline of the movie. The flyers drove people to our website for the Hustler's Handbook.
Warner Brothers - The Accountant
This was part of a social media campaign to promote The Accountant. These gifs highlighted the duality of Christian Wolff who, beneath his small-town CPA persona, is also a lethal marksman, hand-to-hand combat expert and a sought-after bookkeeper for powerful and shady individuals all over the world.
