Hello. I'm Doug.

From the worn vinyl seat of a 23-foot wiener to the slightly reclined office chair where I now reside, it has been an interesting journey.

After graduating college, I landed a prestigious position in public relations for the processed meat paragon Oscar Mayer. Yep. I drove the Wienermobile.

From there I traveled to Detroit to start my “Jack of all trades, Master of none” career of copywriting. DMB&B was one of the world’s biggest agencies and I gained some valuable experience, but after a year, I pined for home and headed back to Kansas City.
