Chris is an SVP Creative Director at Arnold (an ad agency), where he runs the Brown-Foreman global business. He handles most Jack Daniel’s related duties. Prior to that he was a freelance creative director living in Iowa, where his wife was attending a graduate program. He lived in an old farmhouse, grew vegetables, and went fishing. At night he laid on the grass with his 3 year-old daughter, watching bats and inventing stories about them. During that time, he crafted multi-disciplinary creative work for Google, KIA, Audi, Alpha Romeo, Progressive, Facebook, Reebok, and others. It was a nice setup, and he felt lucky. He’s also worked at advertising agencies including Goodby, Silverstein & Partners, Chiat, and Translation, on accounts including Volkswagen, American Legacy “Truth”, Comcast, State Farm, Jameson, Saturn, and Budweiser. He’s given lectures, taught classes and won most of the advertising awards in most of their colors.
