During 39 years in the ad agency biz, I worked at Young & Rubicam, then Richard Manoff Advertising, then opened my own shop, John Emmerling Inc. and ran it until 2000. I'm a published author (Simon & Schuster), op-ed writer (Ad Age), and IFR-rated private pilot. Today I'm an an innovation consultant, author, speaker, blogger, cartoonist, and most recently, a TV commercial actor represented by Don Buchwald & Assoc.
I'm probably best known for my longtime mantra: "Innovation is creativity with a job to do."
And my blogging dog, Max, is ever-so-slightly known for his blog's mantra: "If a dog says it, you can believe it."
As you'll see I enjoy shooting, editing, and posting an occasional video (please comment with abandon.)
