Hi, I’m Ernest. I’m a writer.
By day, I do copywriting, editorial strategy, and creative development.
By night, I spend time with my wife and daughter, write a popular newsletter and podcast called Office Hours Mag, own a vintage sports gear blog/store called Gameday Grails and make very specific playlists.
My 10+ years of experience helping athletes, brands and institutions craft culturally-resonant experiences has led me to work with some of the biggest global brands like Nike, Twitter, Twitch, Adult Swim, Meta (Instagram), Hoxton Hotels, Comedy Central, Red Bull, Chicago Fire FC, New Balance and the City of Chicago.
In addition to all of this, I have written on sports, music, culture, and politics for a variety of online and print publications. My writing has appeared in The Chicago Tribune, Complex, (the OG) Gawker, (the OG) Deadspin, GQ, Pitchfork, Rolling Stone, Vulture, and VICE.
Random Trivia About Me:
- 2000’s indie rock legend Andrew WK taught me how to ride a bike.
- I either created or popularized the Teo’ing meme.
- I was a contestant on ABC’s Supermarket Sweep
