Hi, I'm Kohl and currently I'm a Creative Director at Leo Burnett in Toronto. 

Since getting into advertising six years ago I’ve made some stuff that’s gone viral, once trending #1 and #2 on BuzzFeed at the same time. I’ve won some awards that are shameless listed below. And my work’s been talked about by places like TIME, The Independent, Fast Company, MSNBC, GQ and Vanity Fair most notably, as well as every major Canadian news outlet. 

In my spare time I like gossiping with my wife, laughing with my friends, and don't like writing about myself.
