I've been called a thought leader and an expert, but I've also been called bad names by trolls, so it balances out. My job is leading digital strategy for a kick-ass agency called Cornett in Lexington, Ky. (2021 Ad Age Small Agency Gold Winner in the Southeast Region). My experiences have given me the opportunity to speak at conferences, write three books and be called all sorts of superlatives by Forbes, Business Week, Entrepreneur and others.

My journey is not dissimilar to that of millions of people around the world. I grew up in chaos. My mother was a drug addict and alcoholic. My father abandoned me when I was barely 2 years old. My step-father was hyper abusive, and the kind of guy that you pray never enters your life. We grew up in The Mormon Church where I was molested by one of the Ward’s mothers in the night. Since we were often homeless and the church partitioners took us in I wasn’t allowed to say a word.

Michael & SmashBrand helps brand managers confidently put products on the shelf that sell. Combining branding and design expertise with consumer insights at multiple points throughout our process, we create brands that win customers, not just awards.

An idea company, SmashBrand designs packaging with strategy, style and substance, integrating statistically validated consumer testing into the design process. Product managers and CMOs come to us for product innovation, packaging design, brand strategy, branding and consumer testing. Our data-first process creates consistent results for clients using real insights from actual consumers.

I lead strategy and research, working with clients like Kraft Heinz, Duracell, 7-Eleven, and PayPal to determine through analytical rigor and testing how to best optimize the art and message on the physical product. Our unique process of iterative testing integrated into our design process reduces a ton of risk and allows brands to make the bold moves necessary to win in the market.

My two decades of engineering, entrepreneurism, and business ownership led to a very unique viewpoint and reinforced a problem-solving approach to everything we do. After earning a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering, I launched and grew several globally distributed multi-million-dollar CPG brands. In 2007, I went back to school and unexpectedly gravitated towards consumer psychology, which gave me the insight to discern my consumer product experience through the broader lens of consumer research and marketing and build market-winning brand strategies.

Packaging must connect deeply with consumers and still convey the strategic vision of the brand. I’ve honed an ability to see ideas through the eyes of the consumer and anticipate how they’re going to react to the product or its message. I piece together seemingly unrelated pieces—it’s the place where real innovation and opportunity collide. https://www.smashbrand.com/
