...have a job in advertising. I chose a little of both. Luckily, the children are young and won't likely remember the sacrifices they made. If you read Rachel's post on PRBY, you know she might not forget so easily. In all honesty, most of it was done with our own money, that and the insane amount of support we got (and are still getting) from people I've been lucky enough to work with over the last 10 years in the ad business.
Yes, I'm one of those ad people. I interrupt your day, evening and any other time I can to try and get you to buy stuff. If I could, I'd probably get you in your dreams too. ;-) It might seem a tad evil for a guy into conservation. Truthfully, I don't always stand behind what I sell but I also do lots of free work for charity and mostly conservation related charities. I do what I can. And that's really all we can do right? I thought instead of one of my long- winded posts that you have to read, I'd give you a bunch of pictures to look at. These videos and images represent what I do when I'm not birding. This is what pays the bills and buys the scopes and bins and road-trips to see birds. It also buys beer and whiskey and music. Some is TV spots and some print ads or band stuff. Enjoy.
