My "daughter" (note the Jaws quotes on pillow behind her)
The first time I ever saw Bruce (8/9/87)
Scott's life condensed for your reading pleasure.
(TLDR at bottom for the especially impatient.)
Hi. My name is Scott Christopher Noble. But you can call me "Nobes." That's been my nickname since the beginning of time. Speaking of the beginning of time...
I was born in the late '60's. You know, the moon landing! Woodstock! Vietnam! And my majestic birth. All totally equal in measure. Interestingly, these were the years my father - John Noble, a creative director at DDB- wrote some of the most iconic VW ads of all-time. I think my birth, a full 6 years after my nearest sibling's, inspired dad to stay at the office late to avoid poopy diapers, and thus many great ads were also born.
When I was growing up in Westport, Connecticut in the 1970’s and ‘80’s I had no idea what I was going to do with my life. Then I read Tolstoy’s “War and Peace” and it changed everything for me. About 16 pages into the masterwork, I realized I never wanted to read or write anything so meandering and long-winded ever again (aside from this bio, of course) Advertising, served this purpose perfectly. So in 1998 I joined Hill Holliday. In the 20 years since, I worked on virtually every client at the agency, ran new business pitches, and rose in the ranks from a jr. copywriter to SVP Creative Director. I won awards (One show, CA, Cannes Short List (Radio), Clio Finalist, Hatch, MediaPost OMMA). I won new business. And I won over some of the most stubborn of clients.
I am a devoted music fan, particularly obsessed with Bruce Springsteen, Phish and Ryan Adams. Currently, I am spazzing out on The War on Drugs. But I love all music. I can't get enough.
In my spare time I like to eat, run with my dog, cook, watch Jaws on repeat, ski, eat some more, listen to music as I drive, and continue eating.
