senior creative strategist
As a proud St. Louis native, I have devoted nearly half of my life to all things creative and advertising. These past 15+ years have allowed me to complete thousands of projects in nearly every industry or professional field. My passion for creativity, advertising, brainstorming, and problem solving never wanes, and I hope to continue perfecting my craft until they drive the final nail in my coffin. My free time hobbies include camping, the outdoors, cooking, swimming, designing, drawing, listening to music, watching movies, D&D (what a dork :p), reading, local sports, quick cars, and being with my loved ones.
I am a stalwart team member and can excel under tight deadlines. I always enjoy talking with clients, coming up with ideas, and developing a plan of attack for their marketing and/or advertising needs. My true passion in life is working with branding and ever-trying to get client brands moving forward.
Awards and accolades include multiple Telly awards, an Addy Award, multiple logo design winners/features, and I was recently named as a top 25 Designer in St. Louis by Expertise.com.SEE WHAT MICHAEL DOES
