Mid-Weight Copywriter

About me

Crafty copywriter and strategist working across integrated media channels - traditional and digital - to produce inspiring content. Versed in short and long copy, content management and development, as well as creative concepting. Experienced at driving growth and engagement in brand communities including Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram. Passion for storytelling, social impact and service design. My peers will tell you I have a voracious work ethic, a trend-prescient understanding of pop & subcultures and am dependably OCD when it comes to deadlines.
