Yeesh.​ Is there anything more wanky than a portfolio site? So much self-promotion and meticulously 

planned humblebraggery. Ah well...here goes. Hope I don't sound as wanky as I feel like I sound like.

I'm Jim, a senior writer at Clemenger BBDO Melbourne. Prior to advertising, I wrote for a travel show

in Europe; served as probably-London's-worst bartender; worked as a pseudo gonzo journalist in Michigan;

and went to VCU Brandcenter. I think in that order.

 

Originally from Detroit, but moved to Australia when a long-time agency crush (Clemenger BBDO) came calling

Once slut shamed a scantily-clad vagabond for several hours before realizing I was staring into a mirror.

 

I was grazed by a bullet once while growing up in Detroit. True story. The slut shaming thing, not so much.

 

Can write normally and in mirror image with both hands. This obviously doesn't guarantee any writing ability,

but does guarantee I can at least write shittily four different ways.

I'm sure this sounds cheesy as hell, but I'm really grateful that we get to do what we do.

 

Thanks for stopping by.
