Writer, comedian, and curling instructor. It only seems weird until you meet me.

Before starting in stand-up comedy, Dean spent more than 15 years at advertising agencies as a copywriter, creative director and agency owner. Today, he works for a wide range of clients on a contract basis and is available to write targeted, audience-appropriate communications.

To view his resume and get a brief overview of his work  — advertising, web content, editorial, books, even a novel — check out the document at the bottom of this page. If you want to see some of the television spots and videos he wrote and produced, hear a couple of his interviews with curlers, and maybe even check out some more comedy sets if they happen to wind  up there, go to his YouTube channel.

Dean was also — dead serious here —  a 2012 U.S. Men’s Curling Champion.
