Unfortunately, women are 25% less likely to get a raise. So for April 4th, Equal Pay Day, we launched the Ask For A Raise campaign to help close the wage gap by creating a powerful tool to get women the money they deserve. We created a Facebook Chatbot entirely based on one of the worlds most fierce and badass female industry leaders: Cindy Gallop. The bot pulled in data from financial pay sites API's to arm women with all the information and confidence they needed to ask for a raise, creating a checklist of accomplishments to present to their bosses, as well as set a date they'd want to ask. We saw over 100k users in the first week with zero media spend and 180MM earned media impressions.

The Careculator is an online tool that tells you what to spend on your friends based on how much they care about you on Facebook.
A key peice of Jet.com's Innovating Saving campaign that led to a Media Grand Prix at Cannes.
How? It used advanced “Careculus” to analyze the amount your friends’ like, comment, tag, and share your posts to literally put a price on your friendships. The resulting price can be shared with your friends through social. And of course, it also served up gifts you can get in that price range (for less) on Jet.com.

For Jet.com's new brand TVC campaign, we needed to get the word out about the many ways you can actually save on Jet, like combining similar items in your cart, waiving returns, and shipping to an office address. So to do that, we wanted to showcase all the awful, horrible ways people have tried to save in the past, and humbly announce that they no longer have to do these miserable, garbage things, thanks to Jet.com.
Three days after President Trump was inaugurated, Senior Advisor Kellyanne Conway was quoted in an interview using the term “Alternative Facts” to defend mistruths put foward by the administration.
Ten days after the phrase had been coined, we had written, designed, manufactured and distributed: Alternative Facts the Card Game. We sold out in the first week.
A lot of press caught on. Site Here

To challenge the global perception and put Egypt back on the tourist map, we launched a campaign that challenged Egyptians, not the media, to show us the beauty of their country and show us they did.
We recruited local photographers and artists and gave them a simple task; shift the world's perspective on Egypt. Our campaign tag reached 80,000+ posts in a matter of weeks. We then used content submitted to our campaign tag to be showcased through TV, OOH, and digital; all with zero media spend.
Lemonheads candy wanted to make its century-old brand relevant to a new audience, so we took Lemonhead from the box to the real world. We brought him to life on Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn as a regular, everyday guy who happened to have a massive lemon for a head. He went on dates, had a dog, and checked out concerts. It was as creepy as it was effective and went viral just 24 hours after launching the campaign. The first night of launch we were covered on Comedy Central and the internet went into a frenzy.
JCPenney approached us about selling Team USA mittens which benefitted the USO, and tying that in with their ambassador, Ted Ligety. We had a think and decided it would be best to cover a 90s classic rap song and hire the actual group to perform it.
MiO wanted to launch a campaign about how MiO makes water original, so we made some spots where we make other things original. We released a series of online videos with UFOs, Aliens, and Beavers making other things original.
For Super Bowl 50, the biggest Super Bowl yet, Verizon wanted to show it's biggest appreciation of its customers yet. So we did exactly that. At the 50th minute of every hour, we gave away tons of free things to Verizon customers. Then we got NFL player Matt Forte, and made a bunch of videos and social content like custom GIFs to promote it. We also designed our own twitter emoji to clue people in on the rest of the interwebs.

Kanye west spends a lot of time fighting on the internet, and often that drama results in iconic twitter feuds with huge celebrities like Taylor Swift and Wiz Khalifa. So, I made a site where people could to to check if Kanye is in a twitter fight with people. I then partnered with the CyberSmile anti cyber-bullying foundation, and every time someone shared the site on twitter, we donated $1 to to end cyberbullying, turning the biggest internet bully against internet bullying. Sadly this was removed by copyright lawyers.
In addition to just doing the ad thing, photography is a major passion and continuous side project of mine: I have grown my Instagram account to over 125,000 followers and have gotten to travel all over the world on assignment for major clients like Google, Airbnb, Samsonite, and Squarespace. I am rep'd by Ad Age's Agency A-list social agency Laundry Service for additional influencer / photography work.
To create some meeting theater for a Hot Pockets pitch, we contacted a robotics startup to help us prototype one of our ideas, the first ever Twitter Powered Microwave. Our microwave would heat your Hot Pocket for 2:00 if you tweeted awesome things at it. It had its own handle @hotpocketbot and it worked like charm.
