carren o'keefe / acd / bio

Age 9: First computer. Discovered Microsoft Paint. Drew words.

I’m Carren. Phonetically Corrinne, not Karen. My parents could’ve used Hooked on Phonics.

I’m an Associate Creative Director on Nike at AKQA Portland.

I became a writer because the English language scarred me as a child. [See above]

I’ve been married to the country my whole life. I had a love affair with the city 10 years ago, where I met advertising, and we’ve been together ever since.

I don’t like animals of any kind. [This does not make me a bad person.]

I will glare at you in the elevator if you let your dog lick me. [This does.]

I don’t think sliced bread was that great of an invention.

Let's create the greatest thing since wine.
