I get you, it stinks because I've written sketch comedy for local television and improv comedy for 6 years. I'm for sure not a math guy but it's where I ended up.

SEO keep trying. You'll get a break. Consider the nerdier parts of the business (financial stuff, pharma, b2b technology)

Creative Director 1, can you explain why?

Sure because I (you know, not really I, but someone like me) don't think a@math guy can be creative.

*a math

You have tremendous value to contribute with knowing and proving what works. Figure out how to showcase what you can do and pitch it.

Fuck what CD1 said, and work in whatever field you want to work in. Put the sketch comedy stuff in your book (if it actually ran). Find an art director. Put a solid number of ideas together. Accept you'll probably be hired on as a junior copywriter, and be willing to learn. (Or just go to portfolio school and get your book together that way.) Regardless of how you finally do cobble together a portfolio, there are agencies out there looking for the non-traditional. Wieden was pretty famous for hiring people who weren't in advertising (such as engineers, etc.) because they had an entirely unique perspective.
