Going Back to China!

February 5th, 2009. Categories / China

The journey continues…

It’s official. As soon as the mounds of paperwork go through, I’m on my way to W+K Shanghai for six months of work. This has been a long time coming, but the start date looks solid before March. Now it’s just a matter of getting all my non-Peking ducks in order. I’m both excited and nervous over the forthcoming months, but regardless it’s a great opportunity.

Some Pro/Con Assumptions:


  • Will improve my creative skills, particularly in writing. I’ll be in more of a leadership position.
  • Is in a vibrant, though dusty Asian metropolis.
  • Good money.
  • Limited time frame, unless it turns into something longer.
  • J. will be there too.


  • I will be insanely busy and stressed.
  • Will feel a little lost in the beginning.
  • Won’t get to see J. as much.
  • Shanghai isn’t as nice to walk/bike around in as Beijing.

More news as it develops.



Cool poster! Reminds me of a movie. NIK DAUM stars in CHINA BOUND. Rated R. Coming to a blog near you!

What a fantastic graphic! And even cooler that you’ll be getting paid to work abroad (please – tell me your secret!). Congratulations! Excited for your next round of adventures…


p.s. your “boarding pass” feature will be up tomorrow :) just finished prepping it. thanks again!

Congrats 2 both you & the W+K family. It’s nice 2 see such a true & strong connection btwn an agency & a talented creative like yourself. Both sides are true originals. Have fun & write a few blog posts when you get a chance. I’m excited 2 see the work that comes out of it. peace
