Ken Wheaton asked me to introduce myself to all of you. Instead of a long-winded, boring, forced soliloquy, I think it would be best to approach this like tapas . . . one small plate at a time. That way, over an extended period, you can get to know me better.
I am the creative director for Entercom Portland . . . Oregon. I must make that distinction because, when I was in New York last week, some people thought I was from Maine and asked if I wanted some "chowdah."
I work on client campaigns, business development, sales marketing, and some programming stuff . . . quite honestly, I work on so many things, a list wouldn't do it justice. I will say this, though . . . I absolutely love the job . . . and not because people from Entercom will invariably read this. I honestly love it, because the idealist in me feels that I can actually make a difference to listeners, clients, my co-workers, colleagues, company and the industry. Plus, it's a blast to come to work.
I tend to look at the stewardship in all of this. I hope that I leave radio, advertising and communications in better shape than when I found it. Sure, I've put my share of blights on the landscape but, if one of my interns ends up as the greatest CD in the world someday, then I will have done a decent job.
I'm always open for conversation. Please feel free to drop me a line at [email protected] Until then, save room for the next plate I'll send around.
