One-Line Bio

An 18-year creative marketing guy who loves great brands but hates the old ways of building them.


Hi, I'm John Nielson. Single dad with three daughters. Born in Montreal. Grew up in Toronto. Now live in Maplewood, Minnesota. Have a Boston Terrier named Lucky. Drive a black Jeep. And I love to write.

Mostly I’ve written advertising stuff. With 18 years of creative, strategic and ownership experiences in the advertising and marketing industry – working on brands from pit spray to Turkish tourism – I've had a great time writing, directing and agonizing over a bunch of campaigns with a lot of great people.
