ABOUT







When I was ten years old I was the second fastest 100-meter backstroker in the world in my age group. From that point on my life took a downward spiral as I swam only a few seconds faster over the course of the following ten years, achieving the longest known plateau in the history of swimming. The good news is I’ve been desperately trying to be number one at something ever since.

Though nothing will ever compare to the fleeting success I once achieved as a child, I’ve managed to collect a few awards in advertising including The One Show (sliver pencils), Communication arts, The Art Director’s club, Cannes finalist, the London International Advertising Awards, the Los Angeles Belding Bowl & finalist and Graphis.

I’ve had a long freelance career and have been fortunate to work at some of the country’s top agencies including The Martin Agency, 180 LA, 72+Sunny, Leo Burnett, TBWA/Chiat/Day, Wieden+Kennedy, Fallon, CP&B, Strawberry Frog, and Deutsch, to name a few. Before entering the freelance world I worked at TBWA/Chiat/Day (Los Angeles), Fallon/Duffy, Minneapolis and Vitro, San Diego, where I earned my first One Show Pencil as a wee junior art director.

In my spare time, I enjoy mountain biking, trail running, signing and sharing animal rights petitions, and screenwriting. In fact, a couple of my scripts have won and placed high in some of the top screenwriting contests in the world, which won me a literary agent and manager in Hollywood.

For the last 15 years I’ve been married to an awesome dude named Greg who continues to put up with my Kellyness on a daily basis.
