HI! I'M STEPHIE.

i'm a 'tradigital' creative director and writer at decoded, a media.monks agency in los angeles.

 
I was born and raised in Washington, DC, where I enjoyed piano, reading, and apparently brand storytelling. Here's me at age 6 giving my first client presentation/acceptance speech after winning a county-wide advertising award for an anti-smoking campaign poster: "From coughin' to coffin."( It was the '90s, man! Puns won awards back then.) 

It took me about 20 more years to break into advertising. In between, I graduated with honors from Tufts University with a degree in philosophy, charted at #15 on rock radio, toured the country with my band, and fulfilled my extremely mild lifelong dream of living in Canada. 

When I'm not making ads, I like writing music, hiking with my dog, overanalyzing "The Bachelor," and threatening to write a book.

Let's be friends! stephiecoplan@gmail.com
