Mark St. Amant, he wrote in third person, is an ECD/Writer and Author living in Boulder, CO. Starting in 1991 at Arnold in Boston, now with Crispin POrter + Bogusky 27 years later, his work has been honored by Cannes, Clios, One Show, Kelly Awards, Effies, Communication Arts, National ADDYs, and more.
Almost as obsessive about sports as advertising, he's also written two top-selling memoirs published by Simon & Schuster: COMMITTED: CONFESSIONS OF A FANTASY FOOTBALL JUNKIE and JUST KICK IT: TALES OF AN UNDERDOG, OVER-AGE, OUT-OF-PLACE SEMI-PRO FOOTBALL PLAYER which Booklist hailed as "One of the best sports books of the year" in 2006 in a coveted Starred Review.
SOME REVIEWS HAVE HELD UP, LIKE THIS NICE ONE FROM CHUCK KLOSTERMAN...
BUT OTHERS, UM, THEY HAVEN’T AGED SO WELL...
Mark has contributed to the New York Sunday Times, New York Times.com "Fifth Down" NFL blog, NBC Sports’ Rotoworld.com, and others. He's appeared on national TV /radio shows like FOX & Friends, NPR's "Only a Game with Bill Littlefield”, ESPN Classic to Sirius XM Radio, FOX Sports Radio, Forbes Magazine’s “Ideasicle” podcast, and more. In 2003, his short story, “Sleepless in Florence”, was selected to appear in renowned annual travel humor anthology from Travelers’ Tales, whose contribotors have included David Sedaris, Bill Bryson, and Calvin Trillin. And in 2007 he was chosen as a contributor to the besteelling sports anthology, THE ENLIGHTENED BRACKETOLOGIST: THE FINAL FOUR OF EVERYTHING, alongside such sports/humor writers as Mo Rocca, Stefan Fatsis, Robert Lipsyte, and Bill Scheft.
He’s argued/debated fantasy football, on TV, with rock legend, Meat Loaf. (I mean, who hasn’t, right?) He’s been a longtime contributor to the popular site, The Good Men Project. And, drum roll, he recently turned 50. There. He/I said it. Ask Cindy Gallop—age doesn’t mean a damn thing. Experience does.
After spending most of his career in Boston—with stints in Atlanta, Connecticut and Florence, Italy—Mark moved to Boulder in 2009 to join Crispin Porter + Bogusky. In 2012, he co-founded Boulder boutique agency, Grenadier. And after four years in start-up land, he boomeranged back to CP+B to help lead the INFINITI auto brand, help win the Goose Island Beer Company account, AND MORE!
He currently lives in Boulder with his wife and the two children (above) they co-produced. Aren't they cute? If you don't hire/pay Mark, they go hungry. No pressure.
