I first heard about Xavier Ruffin back in late 2013 during his fundraising campaign for Mad Black Men, a satirical web series inspired by Mad Men about the 1960’s ad industry from the eyes of three Black ad workers.

Xavier’s work is so much more than this one campaign though.

Xavier also gave some great advice for people out there trying to increase their profile. Thanks again for the conversation, Xavier!
