I have been a copywriter at Wieden+Kennedy in Portland, OR since 2010 where I have worked on Nike, Coca-Cola, Old Spice, Kraft, Target, P&G, Samsung, American Express, KFC and a bunch of stuff I can't talk about because I signed an NDA.
My work has won several major awards and has been written up in publications such as Creativity, Adweek, Fast Company, The Huffington Post, Forbes, Shoot, Business Insider, USA Today, Mashable and Perez Hilton's dog's blog (true story).
I am a terrible skiier.
