about / Drew Rupard


I’m a writer and reader from a military family, and grew up in equal parts Maryland, Georgia, and Utah. All the road trips I endured in childhood with my father and sisters instilled in me a love of guitar-heavy dad music and an obsession with America.

I work as a copywriter at Harrison / Star, a pharmaceutical marketing agency based in New York City. Some of the companies I’ve written for include Regeneron, Pfizer, Takeda, Gilead, and Genentech-Roche, on several critical cancer and HIV-related medications. In my spare time I write poems and music reviews.

My favorite things are Speedy Ortiz, Camille Paglia, and green trees and paintings.
