About Dan

AmesProfilePicEvery brand has a story. And I’ve been lucky enough to tell the stories of some the world’s most recognizable brands including Ford Motor Company, The U.S. Navy, the United States Postal Service, Michelin, General Motors and more.

And along the way, I’ve been recognized for those stories by The One Show, New York Festivals, British Design & Art Direction and the Clio Awards in categories ranging from traditional to digital to experiential.
