Bio / About Cary

He was raised in Indiana, idyllically. Degreed at The University of Michigan, cum laudely. Employed in Chicago, creatively. Traversed corporate waters, quite cautiously. Then things settled down, eventually. He found a corporate ladder worth climbing, finally. Went from Art Director to Senior Art Director to Associate Creative Director, pole-vaultingly.

Then in 1997, he set out on a new mission. Not to follow a dream so much as to toy with the notion of finding something to upset an otherwise stable life. He succeeded, quite swimmingly – creating the “one man wearing many hats entrepreneurial juggernaut” that would come to be known as Z Factory. And he would be its Creative Czar.

This jump, cannon-ballingly – off the corporate ladder and into the pool of self-employment and a career as a hired gun – has afforded a great many opportunities to work on exciting accounts, both large and small – illustriously. E&J Gallo Winery. Pork: The Other White Meat. NutraSweet. And Weber Grills – to name but a few quite briefly. The Chicago Tribune even anointed him an Idea Man... interestingly.

Some twenty odd years later, he's still at it. And in no small way. Beyond the day-to-day machinations of running Z Factory, Cary has also developed a self-designed line of products called Maskerdoodles. It’s another hat that he wears, quite proudly.
