Well, hello there.
I'm so glad you could make it.
Yes, please sit. Take off your shoes. Make yourself at home.
Can I offer you something to drink?
With ice or without?
Yeah, I've never actually been comfortable with saying "On the rocks." It sounds like something from that movie Cocktail.
I know. Tom Cruise...I don't know what happened to him.
Anyway, you want to know a little more about me but I don't even know where to begin.
Yes, I've work in advertising and I'm a music journalist and editor. I've also performed stand-up comedy for years. DJed a fair share of parties as the Krowd Pleezr.
Seriously, yes. That was my DJ name.
Where have I worked? Formally? Well, JWT for a few years, freelanced at Taxi New York and Mother New York, then worked at R/GA for an amazing six years. I am currently a Creative Director at Momentum NY.
Are we really talking about me the whole time? Wouldn't you rather talk about Phil Collins? Canadians? Swap tuna casserole recipes?
Sure. Okay. I acquiesce. But first, a refill perhaps?
Right now, I'm also the Managing Editor of self-titled magazine, which is intentionally lower-cased. I'm also Editor At Large for HEEB Magazine, which is intentionally capitalized. I am self-publishing my first comic book SÖNGR which is on sale in comic shops across New York City.
I also have freelanced for GOOD Magazine, Rolling Stone, Spin Magazine, New York Magazine, and Flaunt Magazine among many others.
But enough about me....no, really!
I mean, tell me more about you! I insist.
Oh, stop. You're being modest. You're amazing. And we can do amazing things together.
Seriously. You have the floor. Tell me about the future.
I'm all ears.
