I grew up in Minneapolis and currently live in Los Angeles. I’m a copywriter creative director with an eye for design, an ear for music and a nose for a good story. In my opinion, nothing's boring. Everything has its truth, and truth is always interesting. Not always as interesting as KG, Cookie Good, Thomas Friedman or the movie Roadhouse. But still interesting.
I’ve worked for all kinds of agencies and in all kinds of mediums, and with new tools and platforms popping up left and right these days, you need to be the advertising equivalent of a weapons expert. Plus, expectations keep growing, and budgets, production schedules and attention spans keep shrinking. So you have to learn fast and work efficiently while still being hugely creative and original. A far cry from the MadMen days.
