Campaign US profiles our jury of rising creative talent for the upcoming BIG Awards in New York City.

How long have you worked in advertising?
Four-ish years.

How do you express yourself creatively outside of work?
I got really into mixology during the pandemic. So I come up with my own cocktail recipes and then photograph them.

What’s one social media trend you wish would stop?
