Me circa 1998, around the time I transitioned on the job in advertising.

I worked in advertising from 1993 to 2003 and transitioned on the job with the support of the agency. Below are some ads I wrote. I’ll add more in the future.


This campaign was based on the classic joke opening: A guy walks into a bar with a chicken….


Scam artists

This was a series where two shady salesmen sell people terrible things because they seem to magically create Bud Light.

The national campaign was so popular that we did regional ads, too.



Budweiser racing

This was shot on the USS Lexington aircraft carrier. Very dangerous!

This is the weirdest commercial I ever wrote that got produced.


These long-running ads were shot by Michael Patterson, who created the iconic “Take On Me” video for A-Ha.
