💻 Building & designing stuff with code.

I think there’s a reason why Bill Hicks implored marketers to go kill themselves. 99% of it fucking sucks. The industry squeezes the life out of every opportunity it gets, eventually ruining it. I’m just trying to make the marketing I do suck less – through empathy, service and creating better customers.

📈 I document (super short) daily updates on growing CreditStretcher and post them here.

About me:

In 2017, I sold my small marketing agency, where I was creating work for Patagonia, adidas, the NHS and more. Now I work remotely as CMO at CreditStretcher. I love to tinker on the side, making small projects out of code. I am also blessed (occasionally cursed) to be asperger’s and ADHD. So I write about neurodiversity in the workplace and the, often forgotten, superpowers of people on the spectrum.

Here’s my favourite quote:

Don’t aim at success. The more you aim at it and make it a target, the more you are going to miss it. For success, like happiness, cannot be pursued; it must ensue, and it only does so as the unintended side effect of one’s personal dedication to a cause greater than oneself or as the by-product of one’s surrender to a person other than oneself. Happiness must happen, and the same holds for success: you have to let it happen by not caring about it. I want you to listen to what your conscience commands you to do and go on to carry it out to the best of your knowledge. Then you will live to see that in the long-run — in the long-run, I say! — success will follow you precisely because you had forgotten to think about it.”

— Viktor Frankl, from the book “Man’s Search for Meaning” 

I love sharing and teaching what I know

I’ve taught marketing teams at Patagonia & The North Face and students at General Assembly.

Joseph Pack has taught 90-100 students here at General Assembly. He delivers his content exceptionally well, having incredible experience within his field he managed to inspire and display the message ‘If I can do it, then you can too!’ All while providing confidence and charisma to match.
