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.

    Funny ad, but the thing with buying a car (as my wife and I are figuring out) once the initial happiness wears off, you’re still stuck with a $350 a month car payment. Or two tickets to Buenos Aires every 6 months.
    Sorry to be a cynic, I should act like it’s Friday.
