I'm Cory, and I'm the Creative Director here at Jellyfish!
I'm an industry-recognized expert with over 10 years of experience in digital advertising and marketing. I am passionate about pushing the boundaries of what’s possible within the digital space and dedicated to delivering compelling experiences that seamlessly merge creativity and technology with strong purpose and meaningful interaction in order to effectively inspire consumers.
Previously at AOL, I led a large, cross–disciplinary team who were focused on creating impactful digital experiences for some of the most prominent advertisers in the world. I was also in charge of driving innovation within AOL’s advertising products and formats, and by effectively blending superior design with the latest cutting-edge technology, my team produced immersive digital experiences that were highly interactive, feature-rich and flawlessly delivered across all screens and platforms.
I currently serve as Chair of the IAB’s HTML5 Working Group, leading an industry-wide group of experts who work collaboratively to establish and maintain standardized HTML5 Advertising Best Practices. I've been recognized with multiple IAB Service Excellence Awards for my contributions towards this significant industry initiative. I also regularly speak at well-known industry conferences such as Adobe MAX, and frequently author popular articles and white papers in order to share knowledge and facilitate the overall advancement of the digital ad industry.
In my spare time I enjoy the outdoors, camping, hiking, running, music, stand-up comedy and spending as much time as possible with my 2 young sons.
