Unfortunately, women are 25% less likely to get a raise to their male counterparts. 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 Google Maps’s first-ever OOH campaign in the US we had to do something bold and attention grabbing, so we decided to do something bold and attention grabbing: tell New Yorkers that they don’t know New York, or anything in it… yet.
With it’s first major update in years, adding an “Explore” feature, we needed re-launch Google Maps as an app that you use for discovery of new places around you, rather than simply directions. We then came upon a simple insight: you don’t ever really know any neighborhood, city, or street, as well as you could. Even better, we made every billboard uniquely linked to a bespoke list within the the Google Maps explore feature, showcasing the places you might not know around the city.
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

For Jet.com's new brand TVC campaign we needed to get the word out about the many ways you can actually save more 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.
The Museum of Banned Objects is an art exhibition with Planned Parenthood, currently on display at the Ace Hotel in New York City.
At a time where reproductive rights and sexual freedoms have been most threatened in recent years, Planned Parenthood wanted to make a statement demonstrating its significance in protecting these rights
The Museum of Banned Objects is a haunting exhibition at the Ace Hotel in conjunction with Planned Parenthood, imagining a faux-future which showcases all currently available forms of contraception and STD medications, as though they had been entirely banned and removed from society. The Museum of Banned Objects highlights the fragile contraceptive and abortion rights in the United States that many women face daily by showing what life would look if we aren’t protective of our own bodies.

During Super Bowl 53, Mercedes-Benz was launching their first car that can have a real conversation - which is also their first car for millennials. So instead of telling them about the innovative feature, we let the car speak for itself and join the conversation they were having about the Super Bowl on Twitter.
As a live demo of its real-time language processing, we posted films of the A-Class dishing out “real talk” on everything from game play to the halftime show and commercials (including those of our competitors).
Towards the end of the infamously uneventful game, our A-Class got a little too real for the NFL who demanded we take down a tweet featuring the car calling it out for what it was - boring.
This moment thrust the #AClassRealTalk campaign into the spotlight, making international headlines, generating over 500 million media impressions and getting us thousands of new followers within 30 minutes of the tweet going live.
Sonos is committed to bringing the best sound quality into every home , so for the holidays, we decided to create the best sounding Yule Log Ever. Yule Logs have been a holiday staple gracing the eyes and ears of viewers for decades, so when Sonos decided they wanted to step into the ring, we couldn’t settle for the sonically feeble Yule Logs out there on the internet, we had to take the logs into our own hands and build our very own. So we partnered with an award winning audio engineer to create the most technically perfect sounding Yule Log that exists. Of course, we also had to interview our sound engineer to create Behind the Flame - a making-of video of how he conceived this incredible sound.
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.
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.
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.
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.
