Bio: Al Harvey is currently writing ads for social media campaigns. He’s seeking contract clients who want to profit from social media, rather than spending money to accumulate likes.

A former ad agency writer, Al has delivered solutions (mostly digital) to Royal Bank, Sport Chek, Shell Canada and Tourism Yukon.

After earning an undergraduate degree in Film/Politics and a Creative Communications diploma, Al spent five years with Western Canada Lottery Corporation. During that time, he won a North American competition (in Oregon) for scratch card creative, with Return of the Dough Dough Bird! He has since held executive positions at public companies, including a three-year stint as Director, E-Commerce at Forzani Group Limited, now owned by Canadian Tire.

Al has enjoyed working with many contract clients. They include one of Canada's largest energy companies, EnCana Corporation, the Calgary Board of Education (100,000 students) and many small businesses. He is contract Editor of Glencoe Life magazine, published by a private sports club in Calgary.

Al’s work as a copywriter has been recognized, with awards from Applied Arts magazine and Calgary’s Ad Rodeo. He also recently won a competition for greeting card copy on

An amateur musician, Al has recorded and published songs on YouTube with a Winnipeg rock band. He lives with his wife and young family in Calgary, Alberta, near the Canadian Rockies, where they enjoy an active, outdoorsy lifestyle. When they’re not working and going to school, they travel recreationally within Canada and to the United States and Europe.
