Jeff Cutler - Photographer and Writer

For 20 years I’ve been assisting people with messaging – and for 17 of those years I’ve run a little company called Novel Ideas. No matter the name – Jeff Cutler or Novel Ideas – I’m all about creating content that inspires and motivates. *To view my advertising and marketing writing – visit my Novel Ideas site.

How did I get here? After a harrowing college career where I dabbled in political science and finance, I emerged with a journalism degree and some healthy skepticism. I worked for New England Sports Network and more big brands than I can remember. Then I realized that life’s about having some fun and I wandered into the fishbowl people call social media.

Here I swim, creating content, brainstorming strategy, training legions of newcomers and traditional media folks, and having fun. Seriously.

Never hesitate to introduce yourself to me when you see me out and about, okay? I’m nice. Promise.
