Good lord, who's he/him?

I’m Kevin Zengel, a Scottish Lord and Creative Director who's (mostly) fearless.

As a writer, I blend untapped truths with a hearty mix of charm and guts. This special sauce has driven millions of viewers and consumers to my clients since 2009. Beyond the 9 to 5, I do things an 11-year-old me would tell his Dad about. So far that’s live bull riding in Tombstone, AZ, pitting the Baja 500 deep in Mexico, and singing lead for Metalsome (a live band) in Atlanta. Other times it's me coding this site, doodling storyboards, or sketching UX mockups. Shoot me a buzz and let's chop it up.

Currently working at Havas on world-renowned brands.
