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.

This is not some tin foil hat theory, but confirmed by my relative who works for Citibank. They are told to look you up on Facebook, myspace, or any other popular networking site. Any information that they might deem objectionable, may be used to deny you employment. And to boot, they do not have to tell you that.
