My Blog Reboot

Adnother way to learn

About 10 years ago, I started the Professor Ad Man blog to help students and grads get jobs and grow in advertising.

Over the years, the industry's changed. I've changed. For years, I worked as an agency copywriter and I transitioned to a UX writer for a major corporation. As a result, I have even more to teach and share.


Whether as an ad man or an app man, it's all about creative problem solving. That's what I do and enjoy each day. The goal here is to show you some problem-solving tools to help you grow in your careers in marketing, advertising and now UX design, too.

These are my personal opinions, of course, and I welcome all discussions.

Abstract inspiration from Netflix

It's been a year since Abstract: Art of Design launched on Netflix. The good news is that it hasn't been removed from the viewing roster. Bad news is that it's not really clear if there will be a season 2. Each episode is 40 inspiring minutes about the creative struggle. Even if it's not your chosen profession or passion, much can be learned from the illustrator, architect, shoe designer and others profiled in each episode.
