I began working as a freelance copywriter and the business grew into a marketing agency for information technology firms and internet companies.
Worked on The Wall Street Journal, Coleman, MedCenters and Murray's Steakhouse. Fallon had just won Advertising Age Agency Of The Year, and I sat across the hall from the most recognized writers and art directors in the world.
