Much to the chagrin of his parents, Brian Eden is not a dentist. Instead, he works in advertising as senior copywriter who eats sugary foods and occasionally forgets to floss. But his clients are glad he's not a dentist. (Because dentists make lousy commercials.) Brian, on the other hand, does work that has been recognized at Cannes, the Webby Awards, the One Show, the Andy Awards, D&AD, the London Internationals, the New York Festivals, the Radio Mercury Awards, the Art Directors Club, the Clios, the Guinness Book of World Records and AdAge, where he was named one of the industry’s “Roaring 20’s.”
Brian has done work for Prudential, Hennessy, American Express Travel, belVita, Diet Coke, US Airways, Hyundai, Google, Verizon, Sprint, Celebrity Cruises, Marriott, AMF Bowling, TD Ameritrade, Toyota, JP Morgan Chase, The Maryland Lottery, and Johns Hopkins Medicine, which is as close to being a doctor as Brian is going to get.
In 2006, Brian realized his lifelong goal of becoming the #1 ranked Brian Eden on Google, narrowly edging out Brian Eden, Chairman of the Hillview Road Landfill Citizens Advisory Committee, Brian Eden, director of the Sioux Falls Trucking Association and Brian Eden, prison inmate convicted of two counts of mail fraud and money laundering in Ohio.
Brian has 359 facebook friends and a spotless ebay seller rating.
When Brian is not writing ads, he is a self-taught photographer. Which is a polite way of saying that he doesn’t really know what he’s doing. But in the grand scheme of things, that’s much better for the world than if he were a self-taught neurosurgeon. He is a contributor to Getty Images, and his photos have been published in Photoshop User Magazine, Baltimore Magazine, the Baltimore Business Journal and Charleston Magazine, to name a few.
Brian is also an accomplished humor essayist. His writing has been politely rejected for publication by The New Yorker, This American Life, The New York Times, McSweeney’s and more. His blog, WalkAMileInMyUnderpants.com boasts seven loyal subscribers, at least six of which are not his mom.
Brian graduated from Syracuse University, where he studied Advertising, Psychology and Heavy Jackets.
He lives in Brooklyn, New York with his Labradoodle, Natty, his wife, Leah, his daughter, Hazel, and his espresso machine, Luciano.
