Products made for those times when not flying JetBlue.
Role: Concepts, Writing
When it comes to separating themselves, JetBlue’s core benefits have always been go-to advantages over competing airlines. Plane-wide perks like leather seats, loads of legroom and unlimited munchies are for every passenger.
In The Flyer’s Collection we showcased faux products, allowing travelers to have a JetBlue-esque experience on any airline.

In 2011, Miracle Whip declared it was cool to hate them as well as love them. From this came the fact that Miracle Whip was actually a point of contention in some households. And born was the “Not for Every Relationship” contest.
Couples shared their stories about how this fair condiment brought them together—or tore them apart—for a chance at 25 grand to put toward a wedding. Or a divorce.
The video of a priest and a lawyer set up guidelines and kicked the whole thing off.

96 time-tailored anti-excuses inspire the “Just Do It” attitude.
While W+K gave runners their own paper clock, the team at R/GA developed something arguably more playful. A tool that inspired users to find a reason to run, no matter what time of day.
A team of writers and I—my wife included—crafted headlines for every 15-minute increment in a 24-hour period. 96 were chosen. Hundreds more were forgotten.
The site also served up graphics and products based on the current weather in a user's area.

"Math" :30 TV
Role: Full-campaign concept, Writing, Creative Direction
This is a campaign that us quote/unquote “digital guys” came up with. The idea, not just a script, drove the campaign that my team and I wrote, produced and developed.
From online advertising to TV, from site experience to print, we proved that campaigns didn't have to be trickle-down, matching-luggage offshoots of a 30-second spot.

To convey that this new liquid pill acted quickly on allergies, we created a family of digital pieces that lived at the Crossroads of the World.
In Allergy Splashdown, the ball was a fast-moving pill. The bumpers: allergens. And when users got them to collide, pollen, cat hair and the like were quickly drowned in a splash of liquid.
This experience was flanked by a menagerie of coordinating digital signage for a larger-than-life experience.

Ad community nominates, and votes on, first-ever crowd-sourced awards jury.
Role: Writing, Digital + Social Creative Direction
Using almost purely social media and PR, my scrappy team and I drove users to first nominate, and then vote on, jurors for this ad show in search of a more worldly audience.
If digital was the muscle behind this campaign, I had a headlock on everything from copy direction to writing to the all-too-ironic award show case study.
Mother Nature holds webathon to encourage outdoor activity.
Role: Concept, Writing
This is one of those everyday instances where the brief is to create a single-page landing experience. And then you bring back a not-so-everyday idea that gets the client so excited that they suddenly find buckets of Benjamins they didn't know they had.
Here, promoting all the good times one can have outside, characters of the outdoors put on an online telethon hosted by their matriarch, Mother Nature. Entertainment bits included the sun doing a comedy routine and a cloud doing impersonations while various animals, vegetables and minerals manned the phones.
