Hi I'm Travis Meidell

I am a comic book nerd. I work in advertising. I'm a Mormon.

About Me

As I write this my iPad battery is at 10%. I am watching it count down and trying to get this done. It is an incredible amount of pressure. So here's the facts, Jack. I am first a father and a husband. I love my family more than anything. Second is my faith in the Lord. Third is my love of comic books. I know it sounds crazy but I've been reading and collecting Batman since I was 11 years old, for over 16 years. Fourth, I work in advertising for Nintendo. I love my job. I get to spend all day thinking up commercials for Mario and his cronies. It is awesome. Finally, I am always trying to be creative... Except when my iPad battery is at 10%! Whoa, 9%!

Why I am a Mormon

Because I was born into it but then I started to pay attention to the church and all the happiness it's brought to my life. And you know what? I believe in Jesus Christ. I believe that on his and prophet's watch that the world can feel a little happier, a little better. Look to the church. It will guide the world in peace.

How I live my faith

I moved to Chicago for an advertising job. Previously I lived in Utah. Being in Chicago has helped me learn to be a better example for those around me. Advertising can be a hard job to keep your faith. People there love to swear and drink and party but I have worked to become known as "the man who drinks Coke" at these functions. My boss never forgets to order me a soda of some kind at the parties. Everyone knows why and that makes me happy. It's not easy to be a Mormon in advertising but I make it work everyday. Plus, I do my part and slip subliminal messages into the ads... I am kidding. Sheesh!
