Who we are
We’re an ad agency. We’re not ashamed to say so. We create ideas.
But at our core, building belief is what we are all about.
And, to quote Ringo, It don’t come easy.
It takes time. Tenacity. And trust.
It only happens when each of us has the courage to offer others our experiences, our insights and our truth.
Free of agendas. Free from fear.
Belief is the engine that creates connections and drives open conversations, shared solutions and powerful platforms that drive our business – and, in turn, yours.
- Belief in ourselves.
- In each other.
- In our clients
- and their brands.
- Belief that leads to results.

Copy Chief at J. Walter Thompson in New York. Firm favorite of “The Commodore” himself. Tiring of the Manhattan rat race, he decides to tour the American South in search of greener pastures. Mere hours after stepping off the train in Louisville (his first stop), he is invited to dinner at the home of a local grandee, where he meets a young debutante. A lifelong romance is born. An agency follows shortly thereafter.
