Unfortunate News in Adrant's Ad World Today

As of today, I'm no longer working as Media Director at RDW Group. I won't go into the reasons why I'm not because it will just sound petty. It's actually a good thing. So, I am looking for a job. My background is on the advertising agency side in the media and account service areas. Also, over the last two years, I have been an avid blogger/journalist having launched Adrants as well as co-founding MarketingWonk and contributing to BizNetTravel.

I'd appreciate any help any of you might be able to give in terms of possible leads. I'm interested in both agency and client side work as well as blogging/journalism opportunities. I'm Boston-based but will consider any location. And yes, I will keep things going here at Adrants although I may need a day or two to get back in the mood. Thanks, in advance, for any help you can give.

My resume is here.

MTA Say No to NYC Condom Ad

New York's MTA has deemed inappropriate, an ad featuring a condom-draped ad that the Gay Men's Health Crisis group wanted to place in subway stations and cars. The ads, of course, look like a penis which might have something to do with the MTA decision. Can't we just have fun in advertising? So many rules to follow....
