Deb Pahl

Freelancer Writer, Associate Creative Director

Chicago

Deb Pahl is an attention-getting, results-driven writer for advertising, digital, editorial and social – whatever will keep the power on and her shoe closet fully stocked.

Her illustrious career began in the third grade with her award-winning poster for St. Stan’s annual Polka Fest & Bunco Party. Soon after, she joined the ranks at Tribal and DDB Chicago, roaming the halls as an ACD/Copywriter working primarily on McDonald’s. She is currently living the freelance life for clients like Kellogg’s, Kmart, Ragu and Discover. She also writes killer, and often profane, status updates on Facebook.

A fashionista at heart, Deb was a stringer for DNR and WWD magazines, and served on the board of directors for Fashion Group International of Chicago. She currently spends weeknights trying to convince her mom that, people really do earn a living this way, and is quite happy to call Chicago home.
