Why Macguyvor, Mr. Miyagi, & Maca? Firstly, alliteration. Secondly:
- Macguyver - Creative Problem Solver. Works well under pressure, makes lemons into lemonade– explosive lemonade.
- Miyagi - I bring a bag of tricks for when times get real: from business coaching, yoga teaching, Aikido martial arts & meditation training.
- Maca - Keeps the energy high.
I cut my teeth at Mccann working for a character straight out of Madmen. After 20+ spots, and the same in print and radio (Unilever, Lowe's, MLB, J&J, Wendy's) I was ready to leave the nest.
Growing curious about this 'digital' thing that was happening, I began life on the 'lance- working at boutique agencies, digital shops, and the big boys.
I approach freelancing as special ops. Focused and calm under pressure. Where others stress I thrive, solving tough challenges with a toothpick, banana, and some good ole' American ingenuity.
Throughout that time I studied Film Directing at NYFA, climbed some mountains, got my face featured on a global Pepsi can, destroyed a Malaysian orangutan in a coconut opening contest, and started a couple of companies.
In 2010 I founded The Humans, a values-driven brand development agency. Using a virtual agency model that custom tailors teams to meet the project's needs by sourcing from my wide network.
My most recent entrepreneurial project is United Purpose, a members-based community for purpose-driven people. Think TED and SoHouse's love child.
So if you are up for a little mischief... Let's blow something up together.
