Author, "Beautiful Trouble"
Andrew Boyd is the author of Beautiful Trouble, a “how-to-think” manual for creative action design. He's also a humorist and 25-year veteran of creative campaigns for social change. He led the decade-long satirical media campaign “Billionaires for Bush.” He’s a founding partner of Agit-Pop Communications, an award-winning subvertising agency serving the progressive netroots, and a co-founder of The Other 98%. He’s the author of two books of political humor, one creative action manual and a slew of articles on contemporary social movements. His alter-egos include Phil T. Rich, Brother Void, Mahatma Propagandhi, Captain John Early, Agent Chartreuse, and The Global Village Idiot but he chooses to live in New York under his real name. Until he comes up with his own lifelong ambition, he’s been cribbing Milan Kundera’s: “to unite the utmost serious of question with the utmost lightness of form.”
