I'm a copywriter with a passion for story and the ways it can inform and connect ideas.
My focus is engaging narrative-based copy that’s often quirky and clever. My goal has always been text that's funny and friendly - but never typical.
Fastidious, detail oriented, passionate and fun-loving writer-man.
I work well on a team, thriving with - and supporting - other colleagues and team-members.
I’m well-liked by fellow co-workers, especially the light-hearted, humor-loving sort.
