Neel Williams: VP/CD, The Martin Agency

This is me. Ahoy there. I am a writer. I wear fake moustaches. I spell the word moustache with an "o" because it seems more dignified. I've worked at a tiny advertising agency, a ginormous one and one that's kind of in between.

Oh hey, you're still reading? I was born and raised in Monroe, Louisiana (which might sound familiar if you've ever seen the TV show "Duck Dynasty"). I graduated from Yale University with a degree in Art History, then attended the Creative Circus. If you like my wares, please holler.
