About

Eric's creative philosophy is to keep it simple, work hard, be brilliant and play well with others. He's worked at some inspiring and innovative agencies including R/GA, Grey, Chiat, Goodby Silverstein and Wieden + Kennedy on clients ranging from LIFEWTR, bubly, Cars.com, Canon, Nike, Levi's, Adidas and Fox Sports. He is currently a creative director at R/GA, a digital first agency, leading the creative efforts on LIFEWTR, bubly and Cars.com's multi-channel brand campaigns. LIFEWTR launched on Super Bowl 51 and continued its purpose driven work with social activations #ArtByAWoman and #BringArtBackToSchools. Eric’s new brand campaign ‘We Met on Cars.com transforms Cars.com into the Tinder for cars. His work on national broadcast campaigns, viral film series and interactive platforms (one that even broke a world-record) have earned him Cannes Gold Lions, One Club Golds, an Emmy nomination.
