Daniel “Tompkins” Tompkins is a master of words, no matter the medium. Whether it’s his devastating and understated poetry, his absurd and cutting comedy, or his attention-grabbing copywriting, Tompkins subtly blends meaning and message that perfectly hit the target audience when they least expect it. A former Army Intelligence Analyst and Columbia University graduate, Tompkins is known for his unexpected turns of phrase, flexibility and extremely high standard of work. A bonus with working with Daniel Tompkins is the frequent company of adorably cross-eyed dog Chewy. Tompkins work has been published in Rattle and featured in the Visual Poetry Project.
