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.

Charlie Brown Ad Agency Xmas Never Gets Old

I believe "A Charlie Brown Ad Agency Xmas" came out it 2008, which makes it the 10th anniversary. The Peanuts still hold up as an agency parody. I don't know if that's a good thing. Parts still make me laugh. Other scenes make me shake my head. It's the the business, and I'm sure some creatives feel the pain. Some things never change – and that's not a good thing. Still, like any Christmas classic, gotta watch it every year. And I take account of how much I've grown. Merry Christmas!
