Hello - thanks for visiting my modest website . . . 

The Art of Advertising has always been a passion of mine, where great ideas can come in the moment. You have to be ready to implement, adjust and commit to get the job done on time and on budget.   And for me that challenge is what inspires me every time I take on a new project. That and working with great people who are driven by ideas that are innovative and smart. 

I'd be honored to help you with your next project as a producer or production consultant, no job to small or too large, and help bring your ideas to life. - thanks !

Tom Hansen - President / 

Exec Marketing Director

 - TM Advertising (2008 - 2010)

Dermot was our go to guy for critical projects. He was always incredibly buttoned up and could handle the most challenging production situations as well as difficult clients with equal ease. His work was always thorough, well executed, creative, timely and consistently came back better than expected. I find it very easy to recommend him and would do so to anyone.


Steven Schriebman - Exec Marketing Director, Nationwide Insurance (2005 -2012)

A good producer needs to be able to juggle a million small details at

once, all while keeping a clear eye on the final, finished product. Dermot excelled at this, and did so in the most even-keeled, professional manor.  All in all, Dermot was a great working partner  - I very much enjoyed working with him and would recommend him without reservation.


Bernard Park - Group Creative Director - TM Advertising (2007-2015)

I've known and worked with Dermot at two different agencies over the last 8 years. His experience on the production side of the fence was always helpful. And I've  worked with Dermot as a staff  producer and as a freelance producer both were good experiences. I'd work with him again in a second, given the opportunity.
