I am fortunate to be in my current position, growing my own "agency varietal" in the form of blocshop. The concept was to develop, connect and administer projects via a network of trusted creative minds (the bloc) who operate within independent environments (the shop) to service the needs of those brands who engage with us in the cloud of virtualization. Our mission: to provide our partners with unique, breakthrough marketing solutions; quickly, competitively and through a very trusted creative network.
No frills. Just solid foundations, ideation and execution.
