I had the pleasure of spending my summer at The Escape Pod in Chicago, IL. Over the 12 weeks, my partner and I got to work hand-in-hand with the nimble department and were given some insane opportunities.


Summer 2020 was brutal. I was lucky enough to be at an incredibly supportive, progressive, thoughtful agency. In a conversation with my ECD, we realized a huge issue within word processing systems and wanted to make a statement as an agency. This video was featured on both AdAge and CampaignLive.

While we were at The Escape Pod, we got to work on a new business pitch for Think! We were in the office to listen in on our work being pitched - and to find out we won. Here are some of the pieces I worked on and produced for the pitch!

Dog treats! For trail dogs! We wanted to show what a full day for a Zuke’s dog looked like — the fast pace, the outdoor whimsy, the constant excitement and sustained energy. This spot was shot and produced for a :15s spot on Amazon.
