How to Brainstorm
David Bates, who some call a high-functioning eccentric, thinks in stories, speaks in aphorisms, and wields a passion for storytelling that’s unorthodox, approaching idiosyncratic.

He built a content team at Google Maps and established a global production strategy that covered the Canadian Arctic, Taj Mahal, and Pyramids at Giza. Then he left to turn his side project, a wedding video company named Bokeh, into a creative agency. He now develops campaign strategies and content for brands like Google, Instagram, Airbnb, WeWork, DoorDash, Visa and more.
