I "accidentally" work in advertising industry for a while. My background is business administration, completely not related to advertising or creativity. I have love-hate relationship with advertising, most of time is love (thankfully). I think it's pretty normal to say that with any contexts, any products we use or even human relationship we own. People who know me well call me "a healer" because most of time I listen to them, put myself into their shoes and help them solving their problems. Sounds like a therapist, but I do it with all the brands I work with because brands/clients comes to see advertising agencies to find solutions, stories, innovation for their brands and users.
Oh, you might find some cooking recipes or food review in this website also. Sounds strange, but yes, besides of stories, I love culinary art (that's an another love-hate relationship to read on my Blog page).
