THE SCOOP ON POOP
In Los Angeles, 41% of dog owners don’t pick up their pet’s waste. So to encourage them to do it, we created the “Scoop on Poop” campaign. Pet owners grab a bag, write their info on it and drop off their dog’s doo in the bin. In 24 hours, we’ll test the stool for disease and email the owner the health results.
We helped Cedars-Sinai become more than just the “celebrity hospital in Beverly Hills” with relatable and approachable creative across their various departments.

WALK PROUD L.A.
We transformed an ordinary pedestrian signal into a symbol of support for the LGBTQ community during LA Pride week.

This project was created to generate donations for the American Civil Liberties Union to help support the fight against President Trump’s travel bans. We took his iconic and divisive “Make America Great Again” hat and turned it into a symbol of inclusion to create a conversation supporting the 3.3 million Muslim Americans that already make America great. A KickStarter campaign, placement in local boutiques, and social activations generated enough awareness to produce the hats and create a site to further promote it. We donated over $1,500 to the ACLU.
We teamed up with Adam Carolla to promote his Mangria wine-based cocktail last holiday season through a series of social videos.

My very first tv shoot. Joe Pytka was the director. He elbowed me in the back of the head during a one-on-one pick up game. And then he put me in the spot as "WIRELESS".
