About

Hi, I’m Dave

DJCARLSON@GMAIL.COM / 310.795.2303 / RESUME

 

I’m a creative director and writer with 13 years of experience bringing big ideas to life. Currently, I lead creative teams at 72andSunny. We deliver strategically insightful, attention-getting films, experiences, social content, and anything else a brand might need to stay interesting and culturally relevant. We guide the expansion and evolution of brands - not just to make people buy them, but also to love them.

Oh yeah, I also hunt lion fish. While scuba diving. With a spear.
