Selected Projects: Automotive
I’ve pitched Porsche and Mitsubishi. I helped Mazda grow into their “Feel Alive” campaign for Garage Team Mazda. I’ve worked on Audi at two different agencies and Toyota at four agencies across three time zones, and somehow managed to get BBDO and Chiat\Day to collaborate on a campaign pairing the GE Wattstation and the Nissan Leaf. Below are a few example of automotive projects.
GE WattStation: The first ads to power the electric car.
To launch GE's first electric car charging station, we partnered with TBWA\Chiat\Day so that our GE WattStation ads could power their ads for the Nissan Leaf across print, digital and OOH units.

Mazda Team Joest: Giving a victory to the fans.
Despite not having won, Mazda Team Joest had an active fan base that supported them through missteps and losses as the new team developed. As they worked out the kinks, we planned for Mazda' Team Joest’s eventual first win, which came June 30th at Watkins Glen. Just after crossing the finish line, Mazda tweeted custom videos to their top supporters on twitter featuring the team thanking them personally for their continued support, including specific details like pet names and who they attend races with. The handheld style was selected to make the videos reflect the intimate relationship between the team and the fans.
For the general market we positioned the win as the first of many. We released an Instagram carousel ad where the user interacted by scrolling to reveal a message that said “Thanks for pushing us”, followed by a full-page ad in USA Today that read “Celebrate the win. Live for the journey.”

Mazda: A new kind of holiday inspiration.
We created a winter 2018 sales event that positioned a Mazda as a new form of holiday inspiration. We created broadcast and targeted digital assets as well as a toolkit for Mazda dealers nationwide that included simple experiential ideas like offering test drives through neighborhoods with the best holiday lights using the Mazda Connect infotainment system. The campaign laid the groundwork for the launch of Mazda’s seventh-generation vehicles and led to a 24% increase in sales over the previous year’s event.

Toyota Operations Map: An American journey.
The Toyota Operations Map had two goals: To tell the story of how Toyota benefits America, and to make that impact felt on a local level.
For this responsive web experience, we did both. Through a long-scrolling interface, we showcased the full range of Toyota operations as a single vehicle moved forward from concept to completion, showcasing Toyota’s engineering, design, manufacturing and sales footprint as well as it’s community involvement.
From there, users could explore Toyota’s impact by state or by sector with downloadable brochures for key stakeholders.
