Hello, I’m Leslie Sharpe.

In everything I do I seek the line between what I know and what I don’t. I feel this is where the most interesting outcomes are discovered and where I am most likely to develop new skills and understanding.


I’ve got plus-minus 10 years experience thinking for local and global brands. I’m passionate about solving hard problems with compelling ideas.

An art director by trade, these days I feel ever more comfortable with thinking, art direction, writing, and designing.

I like working for people and places where my energy goes into making the work as good as possible, not the other stuff.




In my spare time I carry a camera most places, seek out interesting people and practice mindfulness and meditation daily which binds every element in my life together... and try to avoid sugar.
