Whitehouse Post has enhanced its roster with the addition of Emmy award-winning editor Morgan Taylor Bradley. A captivating editor with more than a decade of experience cutting at top post houses across the US, Bradley is excited to return to where it all started for her 19 years ago. “Joining Whitehouse is a full circle moment for me,” says Bradley. “My very first industry experience was an internship at Whitehouse, the summer after my freshman year at Lake Forest College. I loved it so much I actually interned a second time my junior year. I walked into Whitehouse a liberal arts student hoping for a cool summer internship, and I walked out with a pathway to a career. I met people there that would go on to shape my entire career, down to this moment. Whitehouse was the foundation for my earliest understanding of the industry. It was and still is my gold standard. To see my name on their roster is a truly amazing moment in my career.”
A people person with a maximalist design aesthetic, you can feel Bradley’s love of human connection in her energetic edits for global brands including Nike, Sephora, Kohler, Vanity Fair, Greyhound and Fitbit. Last year Bradley collaborated with Barkley in Kansas City helping them win their Red Lobster pitch. She has also partnered with agencies including BSSP, AKQA, OKRP, dentsuMB and directors Luis Pena, Brigg Bloomquist, and Jaci Judleson.
As an artist, Morgan finds inspiration everywhere. “For me it’s more about drowning out the noise and letting what truly inspires me get through. Keeping current, while slowing down to appreciate all the tiny in between life moments that really shape me creatively. I’ve been fortunate to work in the Chicago, San Francisco and Kansas City ad markets. I moved back to my hometown of Kansas City in 2019 and fell in love with this ad market. It’s small but mighty and bursting with talent. I respect and admire the creatives who could easily work elsewhere, but have chosen to make Kansas City their home. I’m thrilled and not surprised that Whitehouse has always kept an eye on KC, and love their willingness to invest in this market. To work at Whitehouse, from KC, is having my cake and eating it too.”
Whitehouse Post Senior Executive Producer Kristin Angeletti is excited that Morgan has returned to where it all began. “Ever since Morgan interned at Whitehouse we knew she had the creative chops to become an amazing editor,” says Angeletti. “It was all about getting the timing right, we are thrilled that she’s joining the Whitehouse roster in the Midwest.”
