Freelance copywriter, Jay Kaskel, has been making Robo calls to Minneapolis creative directors in what he calls “a shameless, blatant attempt at self promotion.”

About David Burn

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. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
