Andrew Weissman, copywriter

newaswdrawingcartoon3+2.jpg

Notorious beta male. The kind of guy who orders the fish at McDonalds. Very good at saying “bless you” to the office sneezers. Once spent a year selling burglar alarms to businesses door to door in New York City just to make a living. I’m from a maze island of shopping centers and gas stations. I’m from everywhere I’ve ever heard a story told about.
