This is Vic.

I’m a Chicago-raised winter baby living in the Hardscrabble.
I’m dad to Lucas, husband to Mari, Orange Line rider, and an OG “This American Life” fan.
I’ve been in this crazy ad game for about 15+ years. Mostly at at DDB and Leo Burnett, and now as a Creative Director at We Are Unlimited.
I’ve had the opportunity to work on major brands like McDonald’s, Gatorade, Lowe’s, Quaker Oats, Budweiser, State Farm, Marlboro, and Fancy Feast. And, through it all, no matter the client, agency, or assignment, my goal is to always tell an engaging story based on an insight-driven idea.  And when ever possible, get a little weird.
