Writer - I'm a pencil pusher.
Learner - Dying begins when you stop learning.
Idealist - I believe the best about advertising, stories, and people.
I graduated with a degree in Public Relations. After working as a PR director for a wonderful chef I decided I'd like to push myself creatively. So I did what anyone would do–I quit my PR job and moved to Paris to learn more about the world, and advertising.
No, seriously. It's a longer story but suffice it to say I've studied up on advertising, learned a ton about life, grabbed a bit of refresh, and several bits of baguette. I'm now in New York–after a work experience programme in London with adam&eve DDB–writing on the HP account at TracyLocke.
Why advertising? I'm not sure what finally got me, but I'm here. Head over heels giddy. I love problem solving, humanity, ideating, watching ads, and the creative process. Plus, most industry people I've met are pretty great. If you're great, I'm always looking to connect.
En plus: I favor a G2 0.5, or QWERTY. I speak french, make classic cocktails, love British humor, play music, grew up on an island, and I love the sea. I ride steel frames, eschew sunglasses, love art, never miss breakfast, and I listen to podcasts on 1.5x speed.
