My name is Adam Rubin—I'm a good writer with bad penmanship.

During the day I work as Creative Director at a New York City ad agency called Firstborn. Over the past few years I’ve made funny short films, inspiring documentaries, innovative digital games, straight-up commercials ,and basically anything that can light up a screen.

I've been working in advertising for almost ten years now and I've been lucky enough to create some pretty silly stuff on behalf of some seriously gigantic international corporations.

At night I write stories for children. My newest book is called Big Bad Bubble but you may be more familiar with Dragons Love Tacos (a NYT best seller). I've published six books so far, including Secret Pizza Party and the Darn Squirrels trilogy. I even made a separate "kid friendly" site with no mild profanity in the URL, specifically for picture book fans.

In my spare time, I help adults act like children by teaching improv classes at The Annoyance Theater in Brooklyn. I also design and build magic tricks as well as geometric illusions, but that's all very hush, hush.

If you find occasion, please send me an email or follow me on twitter. In the meantime, feel free to watch me do a flying somersault, fall off a roof or ride around the Alps on a motorcyle.

Thanks for stopping by,
