Principal, Creative


Leigh is a creative director and writer. He’s here to make the agency’s work better—across all brands and disciplines. And it can always be better. One way he does this is by asking questions. Leigh loves questions. His favorite part of the job is figuring out the right questions. This generally leads to better answers. What do you think?


“You can never have too many napkins.”



Before calling CommerceHouse home, Leigh did time at Leo Burnett, Temerlin McClain and TraceyLocke, helping build brands like Allstate, Sony, Reebok, Miller Lite, American Airlines, Nationwide, Dallas Morning News and Doritos. Before agency life, he was assistant editor at Alcalde, UT/Austin’s alumni magazine. And he spent summers umping Little League baseball.


New Things

Having grown up in a house where three newspapers were read daily, it’s no wonder Leigh loves working on the Dallas Morning News. And getting to help create their mobile app? Exhilarating. Terrifying, having never done an app before. And beyond satisfying—seeing it come to life.


Hello, it’s Him.

Leigh loves baseball and three beautiful women—his daughters, Sloane and Cole, and his wife, Christy—none of whom has ever seen him without his beard. He has no idea why bios are written in third person. And neither do I.
