About me
Words. Who needs ‘em, ay? I do. As a copywriter and poet, words are pretty important to me. I think the right words can do the most amazing things. And the wrong ones? Well, I think at some point we’ve all experienced how frustrating that can be. I help brands find the right words to capture personality and communicate identity, so people can quickly understand who they are and what they stand for. Put simply, I connect brands to people through language. If you want a hand finding the right words, just drop me a message at joseph.lee.writings@gmail.com

  • Joseph Lee
    Joseph LeeWe were the greatest troop in the southern states, the best boys to fight for the stars and stripes. Things always seemed clear, so black and white but looking back now it just wasn’t right. What you see is what you are, especially when your mind still has lots to learn. At what age do you become accountable for the way you perceive people? When do a father’s shoes become too worn for their son? Sometimes you need to wear your own pair and learn how to tie them. At least then if you trip, it is
