Laz’s exploits at the University of Toronto and Ontario College of Art & Design sparked a 20-plus year career in Advertising, being entrusted by international agencies to market their Fortune 500 clients. Lazarus has employed his skills as a Writer, Art Director, Designer and Creative Director to produce a variety of strategic and highly successful, multi-media campaigns. From his experience promoting everything from Baby Formula to Beer, the most important thing he’s learned is you shouldn’t mix those two up.
When Laz isn’t crafting script concepts for Switch, he’s creating personal visual expressions as a Fine Artist.
His contemporary landscape paintings display unique and dream-like textural visions of the Great Lakes regions, and are featured in private collections throughout North America. In 2014, Laz was selected to compete as one of the country’s top 20 painters in Art Battle Canada’s National Championship, representing Switch’s hometown- Collingwood.
