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. Wow! Sign me up.
    I didn’t become a chocolate fan until late in life. I was 31 years old when I got married. Shortly thereafter, the beer and sausage and hot peppers and canned tamales and spam sandwiches stopped and the baby making and chocolate gorging commenced. Three squares a day and a half dozen chocolate bars a week have put 35 pounds on me in the past decade.
    Oh well. If the wife is happy, I’m happy.

  2. Tastes like the normal cupcakes. And I still say Gene Wilder rules.
