I've been the Creative Director of DSC since very early days. I helped create the brand's voice, wrote every ad, wrote all site/social/product copy, and built/lead our internal creative agency. Yeah, I've been busy.

My cousin Noah and I used to amuse ourselves by writing ridiculous Craigslist posts then carrying on email correspondence with the people who would respond.

The posts became a blog called Jerks in Your Area.

Rue McClanahan
October 2006 - February 2007 (4 months)
As second assistant to Ms. McClanahan, my responsibilities included making keys, checking food for poison, and responding to faxes from her fans. Obviously, Ms. McClanahan is a wealth of production knowledge and I gained great experience handling the mail order sales of her 1993 TV movie, "Nunsense."

After an amazing four months in her employ, I was terminated following a discrepancy on a receipt from Publix.
