Savvy, sensibility and straight shootin' in one cool package. J. brings an enviable dexterity to the business, rushing headlong to solve thorny marketing problems while staying focused on the people (clients, teammates, constituents) behind the numbers.

He offers candor when asked and discretion when needed, and a full measure of authenticity all along the way. Without a doubt, J. stands among the most enjoyable agency partners I've yet known.
