MediaPost named me an OMMA All-Star in 2013, an award given to the three most influential digital creatives in the U.S. each year. I was called one of the Top 25 Most Innovative Marketers in Digital in 2012 by iMedia Connection. In 2014, Traction was named Independent Agency of the Year by iMedia. In 2013, Traction, the award-winning agency I co-founded and run nabbed Silver for Ad Age Small Agency of the Year on the West Coast, was a finalist for iMedia's Small Agency of the Year, and won Interactive Agency of the Year from BtoB Magazine (for the second time). Here's why. In 6th grade, I was programming video games on a PET computer. In 1997, I started my first blog. In 1998, I was the resident Flash guy at a hot integrated agency. Then, I hopped around several agencies—both digital and traditional—for a few years.
In 2001, some friends and I started Traction. Traction calls itself an interactive agency, but we believe everything is interactive. We are part advertising agency, part innovation consultancy. We are exceptionally good at aligning psychology and technology to create ideas that solve business problems.
It's the reason we've been named the top interactive agency in the country. It's the reason we work with the best brands in the world. And it's our goal to be a leader in designing innovative brand experiences that align business challenges with the needs, desires and behaviors of the people they serve.
