About Tal

You're here! This means you're interested in finding out a little more about me. That is humbling. Thanks!

Here's the thing. I love to write—except when it's about me.

The reality is, I prefer writing about toilet paper than I do about myself. 2-ply, 1-ply, it does not matter. I'll do it, and I'll love it. 

But since you're here, I will talk about myself because you're awesome and you're sorta interested. And that means everything.

My name is Tal Wagman, and I'm a writer from Toronto, Canada working here in the U.S. on a Green Card. 

Wow, right? Before the Green Card I was here on an 0-1 Visa which means a body of non-advertising government officials employed by the U.S. Department of Homeland Defense deemed little old ME a person of extraordinary ability—in the field of Advertising Copywriting. Or, they thought, "don't worry, this guy literally poses NO threat to the freedom and/or democracy of our great nation".

And to this day, they continue to be correct. Thanks DHS!

My final thought:

Before you go, I'd like to thank you again for being interested enough about me as a person and professional to have gotten to the very bottom of my About Me section. It says more about you than it does about me.
