Andrew Rosen – There Are Lots of Them

helloHow many Andrew Rosens are there? Well I’m glad you asked. There are 71 in the United States alone. That means if I want to establish my name as my brand, the odds are already stacked against me.  And from what it seems, all of these Andrew Rosens are pretty darn successful, thus stealing my search engine thunder.

So in case you stumbled upon this website randomly, let me clear the air about who I am and who I’m not.

I am not Andrew Rosen, the CEO of theory, the popular apparel line. Nor do I own a big chunk of Proenza Schouler.

I AM a writer and freelance blogger who loves taking on new and exciting challenges.

I am not Andrew Rosen, the president of Kaplan, the SAT prep and education outlet.

I AM a digital content manager who understands social media and the latest Web technologies.

I am not Andrew Rosen, the Arizona-based orthodontist (though I did once wear braces).

I AM a person who thrives on creativity, but understands how to manage the bureaucracy of business.

I am not Andrew Rosen, producer of fine movies such as Cinderella Man and Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels.

I AM a New York-based Shiba Inu owner who strives for equanimity.

Sharing a name with others does have it’s benefits.  For example, when an ex-girlfriend or nosy coworker seeks me out, I know they had to put in a bit of effort to track me down (you know who you are!).  It also alleviates the pressure of having to produce a male to “carry on the family name.” Cause let’s be honest, the name Rosen isn’t going anywhere.

So now you know a little about THIS Andrew Rosen. If you are an Andrew Rosen too, I’d love to hear from you. Leave a comment below.
