“Jay is one of the sharpest creative minds in our industry. 
The clarity of his thinking and the power of his craft make him a great leader.”  --Nick Law

 

A true creative hybrid from the digital side. A creative leader with 20+ years of experience
who has won dozens of awards, built new capabilities, written TV for the Super Bowl,
and helped define the vision for one of the world's leading agencies.

I'm currently SVP, Global Head of Creative Integration at R/GA.  A hybrid Global ECD/strategy role  
connecting our newly developed storytelling capability to consulting, branding, and media. I also provide
executive-level creative oversight globally.

As SVP, ECD, Campaigns at R/GA I played a major role in helping R/GA become the only digital agency to
master storytelling—from a digital shop that had only made a handful of videos to a modern general agency that's
won Emmys and routinely handles AOR assignments from some of the world's most famous brands.  

I was the Barbarian Group's first ECD from 2010-13.  I led creative at the iconic digital boutique during their
transition from production company to full service digital agency. 

Before that I worked at R/GA for 5 years, leaving as an ECD.  I originated and creative directed some of the
agency's most award winning work during that period, helped start our earliest marketing capabilities,  led and won
a lot of big pitches, and established the agency's voice.

And I was a digital copywriter since the earliest days of the World Wide Web.  In 1995 I started at Agency.com,
one of the first companies in New York that made websites. I worked at Ammirati Puris Lintas for one year 1998,
then spent six years at Ogilvy Interactive as a senior copywriter.  

A NOTE ON THE WORK.  I like the creative part of the job, These projects and awards are for things that I
came up with the idea and/or led from start to finish. As an executive I've helped R/GA win dozens more,
including an Emmy and multiple Agency of the Year wins.
