Myron Nilsson
New York City, Los Angeles + Beyond 

As a visual storyteller driven by solving complex creative challenges, he brings over 15 years of experience to the table working with top brands and agencies to craft award-winning multi-channel marketing campaigns. Before joining Hilton as Executive Creative Director, he was Vice President of Creative at Octagon, one of the world's leading sports & entertainment marketing agencies.

Passionate about bringing conceptual ideas to fruition, Myron has had the privilege of leading diverse, multi-disciplined teams of talented creators, innovators, and dreamers. Together, he and his Octagon team strategically brought to life award-winning content for clients including AB InBev, Allstate, Bank of America, BMW, Coca-Cola, CVS, Delta Air Lines, General Mills, The Home Depot, Intel, JBL, Johnson & Johnson, LG, Marriott, Mastercard, PlayStation, Taco Bell, Topps, Sony, Sprint, and UPS.

In response to the growing needs for modern, high-volume, social-friendly content, he created Social Studio at Octagon. Social Studio is a full-service in-house studio specializing in creating an innovative mobile-first experience integrated with the most advanced social platforms.

Myron learned the power of storytelling as a teenager, when he landed the dream job as a whitewater river guide in California's Sierra Nevadas. During his seasons on the river, he discovered how a great story not only entertains, but also connects us as humans. He continues the tradition today by volunteering with youth high adventure programs, but most importantly, his powerful storytelling skills fuel his professional creative endeavors. 

Myron holds a master's degree in design and technology and a bachelor's in psychology.
