Hi, I'm Meg

I want to do fearless work. Not stupid fearless. Right fearless. Fearless because I know that the client is getting more than they are paying for. Fearless because the work we're doing changes the game for my agency. Fearless because fearful work wastes my time, clients money, and perfectly good media space. I want to be fearless and work with people who scare the pants off me every day with the fearless ways they are going to change this world of ours.
Currently, I’m having my mind blown by the fearless people at Leo Burnett and serving as an SVP Creative Director on Kraft and Kellogg’s. 

Where I've been
For the last two years, I've been dominating the world of storage solutions as Global VP Creative Director of your favorite zip-top plastic bag at EnergyBBDO.

Before my title got wordy, I was living the weird life at Mekanism in Chicago. There I CD'ed the Peloton and Jim Beam accounts as well as pitching in on ALL the pitches, the odd MillerCoors innovations projects, and the Obama Foundation.

In the three years preceding Mek-weirdness, I was trying to stay warm at mono in Minneapolis, doing work for Target, Sperry, Firefox and Smashburger. I know, I pretty much only worked on fun clients.

And, since major climate shifts don't phase me, I migrated "North" after spending 5-ish years in São Paulo Brazil, first at Ogilvy Brazil and then at David the Agency, the little start-up that Ogilvy spawned to do pet projects.

Somewhere in there I took off and spent 5 months at Ogilvy Singapore, working on some global clients for the EEMEA and Asian markets.

I was educated in the dark arts of copywriting at Miami Ad School and in Marketing and Philosophy at Butler University before that.
