Since his last post on MC (5/22/12), Jeff has moved from mcgarrybowen to Ogilvy NYC, and added a bunch of new work to his site (Cargo). Time for an update!
Evan is a copywriter at Arnold Boston, been there since 2010. Little tangent here. After clicking through Evan’s site (good stuff!), MC kept going back to his Volvo Summer project. Is it completely cliché that MC now wants a 1966 Volvo P1800? Is it too “thirtysomething” Micheal Steadman? Probably. But that’s a NICE car.
Andrew is a freelance copywriter/CD based in Los Angeles, available globally (previous MC post 3.19.12). He’s all about cars. His entire portfolio is cars — and when you scroll through it, you quickly realize he’s worked on just about every car brand out there. He recently traded in his old site for a new 2013 model (tumblr), so time for an MC update.
Elinna Vega, Creative Recruiter at 360i in NYC, is looking for socially oriented writers to join their creative team. From Elinna: “Before the advent of traditional advertising, there was direct marketing: cheesy sales people at your door with a product. Then, came print, radio, TV, the internet, and NOW… SOCIAL. Nearly 24 hours a day we’re connected, plugged in and tuned-in to a larger social consciousness aptly named social media. As of late, there’s been a natural evolution in the way we engage with social media; it is no longer a place to go “poke” your friend, “like” their post about today’s crappy weather, or track where in the world Brangelina is vacationing. The new wave of advertising is real-time, social advertising.
Do you think in social activations? Talk in tweets? Fantasize about content that will crash the internet with its impressions – content that begs to be shared to the point of full-blown viral-ness (i.e.: Bacon Barter, Oreo Daily Twist, Oreo Superbowl Tweet). If you think you can develop and execute content for some of the world’s most popular and beloved brands (namely, OREO), I’d love to hear from you. Disclaimer: if you’re scared of producing CONTENT every day, while the whole world is watching…this is not the job for you. We talk to 100m+ people a day – feeling chatty?
You love: Pop-culture, Social media, Technology, The obscure, undiscovered and unknown, Challenges (see below), Redefining brand identities within the parameters of relevant, real-time data & insights.
*Most importantly: Free Beer on Tap, Ping-Pong and Pop-A-Shot.”

Aaron is a senior copywriter at Pulsar in D.C. He’s got a crazy mix of clients and projects on his site, including Dentyne Fire, the ACLU, the Smithsonian National Postal Museum, Arlington Co. Commuter Services, and 3 Bar & Grill. Good times.
Julie is a senior copywriter at 360i NYC. She’s been a writer/CD in NYC since 2004, when she got her start at Mad Dogs & Englishmen. MC is always interested to see what CW’s include on their About Us pages. For example, personal recommendations. At the bottom of Julie’s About Us, she’s got two fantastic notes from Kash Sree and Noah Kerner. How do you beat that?
Kiyomi is lead copywriter in-house at Lafayette 148 in NYC, previously in-house at Kiehl’s. She graduated with a B.A. in Creative Writing, and has worked her way into a copywriting career without the portfolio school stop. It’s possible!
Brooke is a digital copywriter from Chicago who just moved to Philadelphia (available for full-time/freelance). She’s a graduate of the Second City writing program and you can tell—hilarious writing all over her site. Don’t miss her zombie work for Sears.com. So gross. So fun.
Jen is a copywriter at RPA in Los Angeles, soon relocating to NYC. She’s got a bunch of cool work for Honda on her site. But if you’ve spent any time listening to NPR (what writer hasn’t?), don’t miss her Faces of NPR project. Ira Glass looks just like Ira Glass!
