Good lord, who's he/him?

I’m Kevin Zengel, a Scottish Lord and Creative Director who's mostly fearless on the weekends.

As a writer, I blend untapped truths with a hearty mix of charm and guts. This special sauce has driven millions of users, 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 in a live band in Atlanta. But other times it's just me coding this site or sketching storyboards. Shoot me a buzz and let's chop it up.

Currently working at Havas on world-renowned brands.
