Brock’s love of sports and words is life long. It didn’t hurt that his father was a coach and a language arts teacher.
His first job in advertising was a summer internship at a small agency in Ghana, Africa. There he helped pitch and win some Unicef work.
Upon graduation from the University of Oregon, Brock and Andrea Schneider took jobs at JWT NY. Many people there were wonderful, but none more generous and kind than John Cornette and David Ekholm. They showed Brock the ropes as they helped launch Microsoft’s Bing.
From there Brock ventured back home to Portland, OR and found himself at W+K. He primarily worked on the Global Nike account, but also worked on Dodge, Verizon and Sony. He worked with all sorts of really smart people including Alberto Ponte and Ryan O’Rourke, as well as Sezay Altinok, Derrick Ho, Lee Jennings, Jeff Williams, Edward Harrison, Sara Phillips, Dan Viens, Matt Moore, Chris Groom, Stuart Brown, Jason Kreher, Aaron Allen, Rob Thompson, and Don Shelford.
With the help of those people Brock won lots of stuff you're supposed to win. At the age of 7 he won an Oregon Public Broadcasting poetry competition. At the age of 18 he won an award for the best high school newspaper column in the State of Oregon. Since then he's been awarded numerous times at Cannes, The One Show, D&AD, AICP, and The Clios. In 2015, he was #3 on Business Insider's 30 most creative people under 30. In 2016, he was #2. In 2017, he was too old to be #1. He's most proud of his recreational sports championships.
Brock likes sports, writing, smart people, his family, and winning things. He always has and always will.
