Let’s start with a confession, I discovered reading embarrassingly late. But when I did I fell love with storytelling. One thing led to another and somehow I was getting paid to write stories for youth culture type publications. At the same time advertising had a need for “content” and “editorially minded writers”. Bing, bang, boom I’m working with boutique agencies and eventually Leo Burnett. That snarling behemoth demanded I be better, that I create fast, with purpose and always find business solutions through creative means. Eventually I left to lead creative for someone else in-house. Then, John Norman brought me to Havas Chicago. Long story short, when you love something and put the effort it, stuff usually works out.
