Hello

/ Hello

Hi. I’m Mike Howard, and this is my company, Daughters & Howard. Thanks so much for visiting.

This site represents some the work I’ve created between February of 2001 and today, while employed at the advertising agencies listed below, and most recently as a solopreneur.

In each case, I was the writer or one of the writers conceptually and executionally responsible for the work. In many cases I also served as Associate Creative Director or Creative Director. And, as is always the case, there’s an army of talented, super smart people behind all of it.

Here’s the rest of my somewhat convoluted life story in bullet-point form. If you’d like to know anything more, please email me at mhoward@daughtersandhoward.com
