Andrew Dickson
Hello. I'm not going to do that thing where I talk about myself in the third person, because who else would be writing this but me?

I'm a writer, performer and director. If you're here, it's probably because you're interested in seeing some of that work or hiring me to do one of those things. So here's my story.

For years I was a filmmaker and musician. Then I stumbled onto stage and become a regular at the PICA TBA festival and toured my work internationally.

Then I stumbled into advertising, working at Wieden+Kennedy for 8 years as a copywriter for accounts like Old Spice, Target, Starbucks and Oregon Tourism. I also ran their in house experimental ad school WK12 for 3 years and wrote a lot of the communication for the agency itself.

These days I host the Moth StorySLAM, perform as part of the New Shit Show, do a bit of teaching, and continue to create my own work.

I also freelance as a copywriter and am getting back into directing. Recent clients include Facebook, Union Wine, and a project for the UN Council on Climate Change.

Oh, and I'm an auctioneer too!
