The Essential List

The Essential List: Roger Camp

The founder and CCO at Camp+King has a soft spot for canned cheese and USA Today - but don’t judge him for it!

The Essential List: Roger Camp

Roger Camp contributed to this Essential List while en route to Disney Land with his family - and while we’re sure he was happy with the company, we do think that he’d be better suited with some fishing as his end destination rather than queues and roller coasters. (Honestly, that will all become a bit clearer when you read below.)

When he’s not bombing on down to theme parks you’ll often find Roger in San Francisco’s Presidio, which is where Camp+King, the agency of which he is the co-founder and chief creative officer, is based. 

Get to know him better below in this belter of an Essential List.
