On this episode of The A-List (the podcast that asks the world’s top advertising professionals how they got started in the business) Tom talks to Mischief USA ECD Kevin Mulroy.
Mischief is an offshoot of Canadian Agency No Fixed Address, the fast-growing disruptor agency that scooped up Greg Hahn after he was fired by BBDO this summer. Kevin describes Mischief USA as “a small band of experienced, accountable creatives moving fast and caring about what they make.”
Kevin tells us about being a bad student in high school (except for creative writing), hating and losing his first job in advertising as a media planner, and a conversation with comedy writer and actor Brian Stack that made him realize he needed to go back to ad school at 25.
