My name is David Nottoli.

I’ve spent the last thirteen years in advertising, nearly all as a planner, collecting thoughts, observations, stacks of articles and badges (you can see some of them in the Categories section of this blog). And now I get to make my wife happy by putting them on this blog.

Most of my career I worked for agencies like BBH, Kirshenbaum + Bond, Lowe, Wieden + Kennedy and a small shop called Riester-Robb. Two years ago I started freelancing and have managed to make a living at it while living in New York City.

Now I'm starting a new venture with friends and writing this blog.
