Corey is a Creative Director who dabbles in digital. He often limps into work from playing early morning basketball.

Corey is a dog person. He has a deaf white boxer named Mabel, and a dope Australian cattledog named Crosby. (You can follow his blue heeler on Twitter at @crosbydog.)

Corey's ideal day at work? Opening the first email of the morning and seeing the words: "This is approved." A furious, uninterrupted hour or two of writing kick-ass new ad copy. Logging into Google Analytics and reporting back with killer numbers on his clients' websites. Finding his copy randomly on a Japanese-language Tumblr. Scribbling a few ideas for a short story on a sticky note. Discovering the Dr. Pepper machine is broken and giving out 2-for-1's for the day.
