Hi, my name’s Adrian and I’m a copywriter.
I’ve stumbled across an idea or two in my time, can knock out the odd half decent headline and I’m fairly knowledgeable about all that facespaces and sexting digital guff the kids are into. My mum assures me that she’s very proud of me.
Though I had dreams of becoming a diplomat, I decided my love of dick jokes and soft porn wouldn’t really be tolerated in the public service so I went a made a documentary series about men killing each other in jungle for the glory of their king and/or emperor. Given documentary filmmaking doesn’t exactly pad out the bank balance, I finagled a role at Yahoo! as an in-house copywriter before heading agency side.
In that time I’ve done a bunch of advertising related chicanery for brands like Audi, Citibank, EA Sports, Nescafe, Pizza Hut, PayPal, Tourism Australia and Virgin Mobile at agencies like Publicis Mojo, Tribal DDB, Moon Communications, Publicis Digital, MassMedia Studios and Profero.
Outside of passionately caring about how brands connect with consumers I’m way too into basketball and tend to swear a lot. I play on a couple of teams and spend the NBA season nerding out over the stats my fantasy team is accumulating, or lack thereof. Besides catching up with friends to drink excessive amounts of beer, whisky and wine, I also take great delight in crushing my opponents in scrabble or words with friends, browsing Tumblr for pics of smoking hot Jane Birkin types, losing myself in Wikipedia wormholes and reading lots of gonzo influenced essay writing
I harbour an intense dislike for early mornings, self important twats, plagiarism, and cricket.
If you want to know even more about me drop me an email and we’ll catch up for a beer and/or interview.
