Consuming Walker

It’s Sunday, which means it time to open The New York Times Magazine and read “Consumed,” the weekly column by Rob Walker.
Today’s piece is about Crocs–a shoe I’m already hooked on–so my interest level in the article isn’t there. What I am interested in is finding out more about this writerman, Rob Walker. So I did some digging and found out he’s from Houston originally, lived in New Orleans and Jersey City for awhile and now lives in Savannah with his wife, E.
Walker is the author of Letters from New Orleans, and he has some interesting online projects going, as well. One is his blog, murketing. Another is his MLB BLVD site, an “open source” photo/journalism project which documents scenes from MLK Boulevards around the country.

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.

  2. Crocs? Crocs? David, I’ll pray for you.

  3. Does living at the beach give me an out?
