About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.


  1. Actually, America absolutely detests small Italian coffees. That’s why things like the ridiculous Starbucks “Trenta” have become so popular here. In fact, the top reason why most of the espresso in America is so awful is that we pull the shots too long to make the massive serving sizes for the enormous American appetite for all things consumable.

    We drink to quench our thirsts, unlike the Italians who drink it for the flavor and as a social respite of the day.
