Media Columnist, Advertising Age
Media columnist, Advertising Age. I tweet what I'm reading (if it's interesting).
adage.com — Advertising Age makes a cameo appearance in Reddit's new ad-sales pitch deck in the form of quote grabbed from my recent column about the social-news site: "Reddit has become, simply put, mainstream media."
