Casey Beck


Casey is a copywriter at RPA in Los Angeles. All kinds of killer projects for BMW on her site from her time at kbs+ in NYC. Don’t miss her new 360-degree music video for the Honda Civic featuring Moses Sumney (great track). NOTE: You need to watch it on Chrome or Firefox to get the 360-degree-ness. So fun.

Michael Chen


Michael is a copywriter at RPA in Los Angeles. His portfolio is loaded with killer projects for Honda (which you’d expect from RPA), plus ARCO, Kawasaki, and Farmers. His site is built with Strikingly (strikingly.com), which is new to MC. Super easy to nav and looks great. Dig it.

Rick Abbott


Rick is a freelance writer/CD in Miami. Since his last post on MC five years ago (03.19.10, how has it been that long?), he’s been very, very busy. M&M’s, Coke, Jet Blue, AT&T, Macy’s, Smirnoff, Acura, etc., for agencies like Crispin, RPA, Sapient, JWT, and BBDO. This is a good one.

UPDATE: Adam Gothelf


Adam is a San Francisco native at RPA in Los Angeles. Since his last post on MC (03.16.11), just after graduating from Miami Ad School in NYC, he’s done work for great shops all over the country and got a brand new portfolio to show for it. Including his 2013 holiday film for Honda, Santa’s New Sleigh. Santa drives a Honda!

Brett Brown


Brett is a freelance/permalance senior copywriter in NYC. He shares a site with AD/creative partner/spouse Krista Brown, who submitted it to MC. All kinds of cool stuff in their portfolio, including work for Acura, Carl’s Jr., Harley, and an Armored Tailgating Vehicle for Union Bank. But, work aside, can we just pause here for a moment and applaud a married freelance/permalance creative team who still likes each other enough to do something nice, like submit their site to a little industry blog that specializes in what the other person does? Love that.

Jen Winston


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!

Courtney Davidson

Courtney is a new copywriter interning at RPA in Los Angeles. Her site is mostly Honda banners she’s produced while at RPA, plus her student work from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse (great school). Courtney’s looking for her first gig. Who’s looking for their Courtney?

Dave Carlson

Dave is a copywriter in Los Angeles. The first item in his portfolio is Inspiration Trip: “In 2011, my wife and I left Los Angeles with a one-way ticket to Istanbul and traveled the world. We were gone for 264 nights and slept in 72 different beds.” (Beds above.) Dave’s back in L.A., currently freelancing at Mistress. MC’s #1 2013 resolution: some kind of Inspiration Trip. Even it’s 2 nights instead of 264.

Théo Wallace

Théo Wallace is a copywriter in Los Angeles. His portfolio is an old school Blogspot called Fern Bar, named after 1970s bars frequented by hip ad peeps at the time (including Théo’s father who was at BBDO) that were filled with actual ferns. What’s better than ad land history? MC loves it.

Lee Hanson

Lee is a copywriter at Colle+McVoy in Minneapolis. His site is titled “THINGS I WRITE:” and his work is organized in categories that finish the sentence – “on bus shelters” and “on jumbotrons” and “for osteoarthritic canines.” Makes you want to click on all of them, just to see what’s what. Fun.

Todd Carey

Todd is a copywriter/acd/vp at RPA in LA. His book is loaded with awesome work for Honda–one of MC’s secret fave car brands. Todd is an alum of Second City and Upright Citizens Brigade, yet again proving MC’s theory that comedians, drummers and surfers make fabulous copywriters. Maybe we should add categories for those in the sidebar. Hmm.

Jim Real

Jim is a copywriter/CD in Los Angeles. His site is hosted on Krop. Love how the horizontal slider lets you nav through integrated campaigns quick and easy. Each starts with a simple set-up card, then goes big pieces to outer reaches. He’s also got a deep radio selection, which has become a rarity on writer sites. Tip o’ the Hat.

John Guynn

John is a copywriter/ACD at RPA in Los Angeles, David & Goliath and McKinney before that. What’s better than going through someone’s site, seeing work you’ve never seen before, and laughing out loud because it’s hilarious and awesome? Well. Okay. The Spinach & Shaved Parmesean Pizza at Tommaso’s in San Francisco is better. But not much.

Eric Helin


Eric is a copywriter at RPA in Santa Monica, where he did this cool Honda board. He wrote that killer Honda “Trashed” spot, which is a must-see on his reel. He also does what many of us dream of doing, and that’s live in Santa Monica and write films.
