Words are my passion, my art, and my love. Long before I spent 2-plus years as a copywriter for an internet marketing company, I spent my free time writing fiction novels; helping friends and loved ones write their e-mails, letters, resumes, and school papers; and scoring in the top fifth percentile on the English portion of my SATs. Writing a great, attention-grabbing headline in a piece of graphic design or an opening line in one of my novels makes me happy like nothing else. So me, working to give you the best copy possible? It's a win-win for us both. Feel free to contact me today if you are interested in me putting my talents to work for you. I promise you won't be disappointed, and neither will I.
