If you need great scriptwriting or fantastic ad or web copy, I'm for you. I ask one simple question: What makes you or your project/company unique?

I produce original ideas at record speed. I thrive when challenged and enjoy guiding each client, whether independent or corporate, to their success. -- My worldwide clients include: Sprint, Hilton International, and Eric Bailey Global. I'm a member of The Dramatists Guild of America.

Service Description
After accepting my proposal, I usually have a phone/Skype conference before starting a new project so to ensure maximum communication. You become part of of the process so there are no surprises.

For script clients: I provide instant story ideas in the first meeting. You approve, we go from there. For web business clients, we discuss what makes you or your company unique amidst your greatest competitors. You provide the information and major points you want in the copy. We determine sharp and concise SEO language, then I write the first draft.

I send you the draft, you comment, add changes, and we have another conference call to ensure the results you want in the second draft. Normally, the copy is completed by the second draft.

Payment Terms
Cost & Timing. My rates start at $50-75./hr. Total hours or flat fees depend on how much you have organized your project. The more organized, the less time I spend. Most of my work is completed by the second draft, which ultimately saves you time and money. Others may charge less, but may take far longer to complete your project.
