Creative Director @ Swizzle Collective Chris started his career as a copywriter after graduating from the Creative Advertising Program at UT Austin, but switched directions almost immediately upon arriving on Madison Ave. He made an independent film. Worked in the music industry. Then backed into the advertising world again as an account manager. Then a planner. Then he completed the circle by starting Swizzle in 2009 as partner and creative director. Over the years he’s concepted, written, produced and/or directed many a “thing”… from big TV campaigns, corporate videos, print campaigns, outdoor campaign. Heck, he even dabbles in illustration, mural painting and TV show development.
After many years in NYC, Chris moved back to Austin where he lives with wife Stefani (also a writer), kids Zuzu and Rocky, and dogs Henry and Nancy.
