ABOUT JAMIE HOWARD
Over the last decade, Jamie Howard worked as an advertising
writer and director, primarily in New York and Los Angeles.
In that time, he compiled a reel of award-winning commercials
for a number of clients, including a new global campaign for
British Airways. His commercial work for New York based client,
Roommate Finders, was selected in 2000 by the AICP - The American
Association of Independent Producers - to go into the Museum
of Modern Art's permanent collection archives. After being shut
out of his World Trade Center adjacent apartment for the month
after 911, Mr. Howard suffered a "Quarter-life crisis"
and turned his sights toward the less populated city of Charlottesville,
Va. (Little did he know Charlottesville would soon be publicized
as the #1 ranked best place to live in the U.S.) and began looking
beyond the commercial format.
being taken fly fishing by his father at 10, Howard has since
explored North America, South America, Africa, Australia and
the Caribbean with a fly rod. In 2004, Mr. Howard worked with
best-selling author John Grisham on Grisham's independent feature,
Mickey. The American Marketing award for best new advertising
campaign of 2004 was awarded to Howard as creative director
for Virginia based advertising agency Payne Ross and Associates.
His film, In Search of a Rising Tide is an official selection
of the 2004 Jackson Hole Film Festival.
Howard grew up in Charlottesville, Virginia and received a B.A.
from The University of Virginia.
