Luke Behrends is a freelance writer and founding partner of Words From The Woods, a branding and content consultancy with a client roster that’s included companies the likes of Apple, Google, 72andSunny and R/GA.

Before moving to Portland, he spent a decade in the NYC game rising up the proverbial ladder and earning honors at Cannes, The One Show, The Clios and even the front page of his hometown newspaper.

Luke was born in a cornfield, lives on the ocean and tells agencies, design shops, production houses and companies big or small to treat him like a ringer for their softball team. He’ll hit you a few homers and be on his way.
