Thom Henkel

solves problems for a living.

For over twenty years, I've worked with talented teams to tell captivating stories and forge strong connections between brands and their audiences.

I believe creativity is a form of alchemy. It's mysterious, temperamental, and unpredictable, and I've considered myself fortunate to have the opportunity to make sense of it.

Truly impactful solutions start with uncovering human truths hidden within insights. It's transforming doubts and challenges into catalysts for consideration. It's asking yourself why anyone would want to watch, listen, interact with, or believe in what you say. I'm not here to waste anyone's time. After all, an idea isn't worth its weight in awards if it isn't delivering on business objectives.

I continually strive to create work that sparks curiosity, captivates diverse audiences, and inspires action. Ultimately, I hope to lead others that are happy, healthy, and inspired to do the same.
