Hello, My name is Christina Katsantoni and here’s a brief history of who I am, what I do, and why you should hire me: I grew up in Greece, raised by two non-creative parents who were OK to let their big girl move to US and study a seemingly impractical career: copywriting. Though I fell in love with design, I remained loyal to my first love - writing - and realised I'm really good when it comes to creative, concise and inspirational copywriting and scriptwriting. And in 2000, I landed my first job as a junior copywriter. After ten years of very little sleep and a lot of writing, advertising work began overwhelming my life and my desire to try new things became too much to bear. I ventured out on my own and embarked on getting my Master's degree in Digital Media from Goldsmiths University, UK. This decision would end up changing my career and my life. I’ve been a copywriter, scriptwriter, creative lead and relentless Starbucks aficionado in and out of London since 2010 and have worked for a lot of amazing clients like Direct Line Group, Rightster and Sapient Nitro. My strong points? Working collaboratively, thinking proactively, able to take initiative and to juggle multiple projects at once. All things I've learned by working for ad agencies like McCann, Havas and BBDO and clients like BMW, Mini, Miele, L'Oreal Paris, McDonalds and Nestle among others. Want to know more? You’re in luck; I’m a serious over-sharer. Find me on LinkedIn or follow me on Behance. Any search for ‘ckatsan’ on the above sites will unfold my creative skills before your eyes any way you choose. Many thanks, Christina
