to extremes ...
My creative philosophy is: Going to
extremes on behalf of my clients is no vice.
Whether the project calls for me to
climb into a vintage warbird and fly Immelmanns, Loops, Barrel Rolls and
Cuban-8s for Microsoft Combat Flight Simulator 3, or use out-of-the-box thinking to
create new merchandising and integrated mail, email website and telemarketing
campaign that generates multi-million dollar increases in top line revenue for
Employerware − I'm
always ready to take it to the edge. Not for the goal of winning Echo Awards,
but for the mission objective of generating profitable results.
... For clients with the courage to succeed beyond
