I have spent quite a few years in the advertising world and still can't find a reason to sever ties with it. My skills are good; some would say, very good--whichever you may want to take.
I have been involved with copywriting, web content and article writing for web and publications. I am at ease with all three.
To a certain extent, design and its subtleties also fascinate me and charge my imagination. That, too, remains an indulgence.
