Zulu Alpha Kilo CCO & Partner
Tim began his career in advertising as was one of the first 40 Droga5 NYC employees, starting as a writer back in 2008. Tim helped grow the agency during its formative years; his work for PUMA After Hours Athlete and Vesta garnered a Grand Prix at Cannes and One Show’s inaugural Green Pencil respectively. Shortly thereafter Campaign Magazine/Yahoo named Tim, Creative of the Year. Since then, Tim worked on most everything that came through Droga5’s door: Coke Zero, American Express Travel, Clearasil, AirWick, Motorola, Harry’s, Under Armour, Chase, Mattress Firm, Paramount+, Reform Alliance and The New York Times. Over the years, Tim’s work has been recognized by every major industry organization; notably Under Armour’s Michael Phelps film earned a second Grand Prix at Cannes and was named Ad of the year by Adweek. As Co-Chief Creative Officer of Droga5, Tim not only produced award winning work but also created influence and effectiveness for iconic brands. Tim was the driving force behind The New York Times’ buzzworthy campaign, “The Truth is Hard.,” which placed the Times at the center of the conversation about the importance of a free press with a goal to reaffirm its role in today’s political climate. His efforts led to two Grand Prix Lions at Cannes as well as The New York Times recording its best subscriber growth to date. During his decade plus tenure, Droga5 was named Agency of the Decade by both Adweek and Adage, and most recently was named Adage Agency of the Year in 2021. Tim now joins Zulu Alpha Kilo as a partner and Chief Creative Officer starting the New York office. He is excited to build on the success of the agency in Canada and create one of the most impactful independent creative agencies in the world. When not at work, Tim is also on the advisory board of Project Healthy Minds, a mental health non-profit for young adults. Tim also enjoys running marathons and spending time with his wife, daughter and two dogs (obviously).
