Kieran O’Driscoll

Copywriter

This is part two of a two-part story. You can read part one in Eric’s bio.

I left college with a Master’s in American Literature and soon found myself working as a barista in a popular pizza restaurant. I had always been intrigued by the idea of a career in advertising, and working in close proximity to my ad-addicted friend and pizza colleague Eric motivated me to finally pursue creativity full-time. I assembled a portfolio and left the world of coffee to become a Copywriter intern at eightytwenty, where I took every opportunity to learn the trade and grow my skills.

After teaming up with Eric we landed in Epsilon Dublin, where we work together on some great brands. Along the way we’ve been shortlisted for the IAPI Young Lions Film competition, and we’re delighted to have achieved another goal in being accepted into Upstarts as a creative team.
