Psst, here's how to say my name.
What can be said about me that hasn’t been said about Harry Potter?
Magical. Easy to read. Dead if it weren’t for his two best friends.
But I digress.
I first worked in advertising during high school – dressed as Tony The Tiger for Leo Burnett’s Christmas party. 
I retired from that and found myself in a media agency. Realizing I was proud of crafting clever emails and not spiffy spreadsheets, I changed course. I missed bringing brands to life like Tony did.
Nowadays, I like to write more than just clever emails. I want to connect people with brands in ways that make them think, laugh, and even even cry (in a good way). 
My dream is to shoot an ad in space, work in Europe, or have my mom send me my own work asking if I’ve “seen this cool video”.
If we can make any of those happen together, let's talk. helloamansoin@gmail.com

Fun Facts:

- My first time hiking was to Everest Base Camp. Go big or go home, right?
- My first time camping was in Mongolia. It was also my first time invading Russia 
  on horseback (accidentally).
- I interviewed at a spy agency twice. Like any good spy, I won't shut up about it.
- I slept overnight inside an IKEA. I think "try before you buy" applies to beds too.
- I do stand-up comedy. I am not good. I should probably sit down.
