Show me a brand. I'll tell you its story.


Own a used car lot? I'll give those geriatric automobiles the Golden Girls spotlight they deserve. Got a brewery? Great, toss me in the brew kettle with a notebook, and I'll emerge with a beer-branded magnum opus. And if you're launching a startup, I'm your man: because I'll cultivate the voice of your brand for nothing but unearned praise and ping-pong breaks. Why? Because just as your next project exemplifies your brand, my words exemplify mine. Let's get to work. 

Yours in Content,

Clark, Chief Bad Buoy

Why did you choose Portland? We're in the presence of a powerful tide here in Portland. And as a creatively inclined entrepreneur, there's just something about this place that makes it near impossible to leave. I'm quite sure I'm the "enth" person to give you that answer. But that many Portlanders can't be wrong.

Where's your "happy place" on the peninsula? In the dead of winter, it's got to be The Nick. I've found no better escape than a solo mission to the coolest theater this side of anywhere.

What's the most surprising thing about this city? The [paper-thin] degrees of separation. This town can connect you to damn well anyone or anything on the planet. If you really immerse yourself in Portland – It can give you the world.

What's your favorite indulgence and where do you find it? OhNo's #1 is more than just the first food item listed on the sandwich board. It is a Higher Power's culinary magnum opus.
