He joins ENGINE from VCCP New York, where he helped open the Manhattan office while serving as the North American lead on the global Shell Oil business (he led the Pennzoil and Rotella brands). He also launched 360 campaigns for a variety of brands entering the U.S. market, specifically Violife Vegan Cheese and LetsGetChecked, an at-home, virtual healthcare brand.

He launched the social community for YouTube Music ahead of the platform release and managed evergreen social content and campaigns for Google Hardware, the Nestle portfolio (including SweeTarts, Stouffer’s, Buitoni, and HotPockets), Starbucks, and more.

He leads the HBO team at ENGINE and supports @HBO, @HBOMAX, and @MAXMOVIES. He’ll also partner with leadership and cross-functional teams within ENGINE to grow the Warner business.
