Stephen is a master of producing all things related to brand and consumer experiences. In 20 years working at some of the biggest and best production facilities and advertising agencies both in New Orleans and Atlanta, he’s worked on things that impact how people experience brands, as well as things that make you question how it’s done.
Ever disassemble a classic mini to move it up to the 11th floor of a hi-rise to be reassembled for a pitch meeting? What about building a larger than life sized paper sculpture that shows all of the industries a fire protective clothing company services only to burn it down to prove to the world how important said clothing is to the people who wear it? Have you ever been into a retail environment and been surrounded by targeted messaging, across multiple platforms, that immerses you in the brand like it’s the brand’s own store? What about building a potato powered cell phone charging station to show tradeshow attendees just how your company has harnessed the power of the potato? Well, that’s a regular weekday for Stephen.
He’s a champion of the big creative idea. He’s got innate, MacGyver-like production skills for realizing and executing those ideas. Stephen also “speaks client” fluently to help you get that idea sold in to the decision makers, while leaving them feeling safe and secure knowing that the project is in good hands. He protects budgets, ensures timeframes are met, and exceeds expectations (regularly) all while making it look easy (when it’s often not).
Stephen has recently worked at BBDO Atlanta, on brands as varied as The Georgia Lottery, Georgia Pacific, Bayer CropScience, Norwegian Cruise Lines, Sanderson Farms, and VOYA Financial. That follows a long stint at Fitzgerald + CO working on Coke, Georgia Power, Bottom Dollar, Quikrete, TVA, Navy Federal Credit Union, Longhorn Steakhouse, Bulwark Professional Clothing, Aruba Tourism, and Pergo Flooring. Needless to say, there isn’t any portion of consumer marketing that Stephen hasn’t played a critical role in developing, producing, and implementing across different sectors.
You’d think that’s all Stephen would have time for, but he’s a dedicated husband of 21 years to an amazing wife, has two glorious daughters, is a long-time volunteer in his church’s youth ministry program, and actually enjoys yard work on the weekends to find that “Moment of Zen”.
