MEET THE COLLECTIVE
Chris Davis/Creative Director/Copywriter. Though Chris is a copywriter by trade, he’s worn many different hats in his 20 year career, including account director, researcher, strategist, media buyer, media planner and filmmaker. Along the way, he learned from some of the greats, including Hall of Famers Jerry Della Femina, Diane Rothschild and Mal McDougall. Nowadays, he’s dedicated to pursuing his own hall-of-fame career back in Austin, where his journey began at the University of Texas.
Noah Davis/Creative Director/Art Director. A native Austinite, Noah spent the bulk of his advertising career as an Art Director / Creative Director in New York City working for agencies large and small. You've seen his work on the Super Bowl and in blingy ad annuals, but he's never been happier than to be back home building brands with an amazing collective of incredible talent here in Austin. And while he and Chris share a last name, and a love of obscure classic metal deep tracks, they are not, in fact, related.
Bobby Brooks/Digital . With 10+ years of planning, building & managing online productions, Bobby is an expert at aligning websites, campaigns, SEO, and PPC to work together to reach specific goals while monitoring and optimizing along the way. He brings a vision and expertise that is platform agnostic, supporting multiple analytics suites, Ecommerce platforms and CMS technologies. As a native San Diegan, he claims to be the only member of the team who knows what real Mexican food tastes like.
T.C. Waugh/Business Development. T.C. Waugh is an experienced Brand Manager and Strategist. For the last 13 years, he has managed two brands (John Christian Jewelry and Carved Creations) for his online jewelry company, specializing in one-of-a-kind custom pieces. His experience spans all variety of media, including print, radio, direct mail, email marketing, search, display, billboards and point-of-sale. In recent years, his focus has been on social media marketing. While working in the advertising world, his clients included Hennessy Cognac, Castrol Motor Oil, Greyhound and AT&T. A graduate of Boston University and with a Master’s in International Business from universities in Argentina and France, his sharp marketing knowledge and keen design eye make him a valuable contributor to The Swizzle Collective.
Charlie Goulet/Motion Graphics & Videographer. Charlie cut his teeth in motion graphics — specializing in After Effects and Cinema 4D. But directing and shooting video has always been his true passion. Since joining the Collective as an intern in 2014, he has grown into a passionate and extremely capable member of the family. In just a few short months he has shot, edited and finished original content for several Swizzle clients. We couldn't be happier to have him aboard.
Leah Levy/Content Writer. Leah is an author, copywriter, and content strategist. With an MFA in Fiction Writing and a BA in Brain & Cognitive Sciences, her mind is a meld of a science journalist’s analytical rigor and a fantasy fiction writer’s wacky creativity. Her specialty is in taking clients who say, “We have nothing to write about,” and turning their sites into interactive media sites. She’s worked with the world’s biggest brands to the smallest, and has lived on every (so, both) U.S. coast. She has an unhealthy obsession with her ridiculously cute dog. Check out her portfolio here and see what fictional hijinks her characters are up to on her website.
