  • Clio
  • LIA
  • Effies
  • OBIE
  • Webbys
  • ECHO
  • Shortys
  • ADDYs
  • International News Media Awards
  • The Bowery Awards
  • Midas
  • Davey
  • WebAwards
  • Communicator Awards
  • Loyalty360 Awards
  • The FWA
  • Promax
  • Sundance Institute
  • Airports Council International North America Marketing Excellence in Marketing Award (great story)

I've judged the Effies, Cannes Young Lions, the AICP Next Awards, The Drum B2B Awards, the ACE Awards, and ADC's Portfolio Night, and spoken at The One Club. I'm also a Webby Awards judge, as well as an associate member of the International Academy of Digital Arts and Sciences.  

A little more about me.
I'm a second generation ad guy. I was born in New Jersey, grew up in Miami, went to college in Nashville and grad school in Los Angeles. I read a little too much non-fiction and enjoy travel, cooking, and public transportation, and I’m a husband and a father of two boys. 

And even more.
I earned two degrees in classical music composition, my first job involved interviewing a rather drunk Charlton Heston at 10:30AM, I authored a Twitter thread that went viral, and I'm a dual citizen (US and Italy--Long used to be Longo).

The 2019 American Advertising Federation, Hall of Fame Program Ad
It was an honor to be asked to write Ogilvy's ad for the 2019 AAF Hall of Fame program. It's also excellent advice for creatives.
