EXTRAS


Miami Ad School Instructor and three-time guest “Industry Hero”
I’ve been an instructor at Miami Ad School since 2008, and since then I’ve been asked on three separate occasions to be the guest “Industry Hero.” What that means is- I give a presentation to the students, assign a brief for them to work on during the week, then give the students creative direction & judge their work at the end of the week. Some of my students have won major awards like Lions, Clios & Pencils— and one of my former students is currently considered “the most awarded ad student in the world”, having won 79 International awards.
