Great copy writing is a balancing act. On the one side you have boundless imagination and infinite possibilities - the need to capture the attention of an audience, tell a great story and create emotional investment in the product. On the other side are the functional requirements of the project - the structure needed to hit selling points, understand the market and ensure that the message is clear, concise and on brief. Creative writing is my great passion. I have a background in writing for film and comics, which allowed me develop a range of tones, voices and how to combine them in order to tell the best "story". Working for a production company as a writer, video editor and producer, has given me the advertising experience needed to create copy on brief. I've seen video and print campaigns from many different angles, which was crucial in helping me understand what is required in every part of the chain. Many writers only have experience from that point of view, which can be limiting. I have a lot of web experience and am currently focusing on brand identity, strategic writing, and web content.
I enjoy motivating people and have a varied business background. As a result, I have a deep well of resources to draw from when working on particular projects. I have authored two books and love the the creative side of that process. I plan on becoming an accomplished author and speaker; traveling the country, inspiring people to reach their dreams. The potential is there for all of us to become something spectacular. With that stated, I would love to help you with your project needs. I possess a strong command of the English language. I will not be satisfied unless you are. I took my last business venture to 22 million dollars living by that very simple principle. Customer service is an art as much as it is a science. I look forward to serving you.
Don't let the excess hair fool you. I've spent more than 15-years in online advertising and new media start-ups. Throughout my career I've written press-releases, been in charge of multimillion dollar advertising budges, written and managed numerous direct marketing campaigns and written for AdMedia magazine (NZ), Marketing magazine (NZ) and a tonne of blogs and short and long-form video projects. Here's my latest website copy: http://wolfproductions.co.nz http://www.tinatheseries.com/#about
During the last three years I have been working in international environment - be it the British Parliament or NATO-affiliated international youth institution. My educational background is in political sciences (University of Edinburgh (MSc), Research Fellow at London School of Economics, and currently doing my PhD in Switzerland). My core competency lies in former Soviet space, in particular, I am consulting investors on the matters of political, legal and risk assessment in the South Caucasus region with focus on Georgia. I am also experienced of working on regional politics and energy security issues.
Whether it's my professional work, my novels, or my blog, I look to produce writing that has something worthy of being said. I am a freelance copywriter and author with a keen understanding of how language can persuade. Being a creative writer allows me to bring a unique perspective to the task of copywriting, and makes me fluent in a range of styles. I know that the key to great copy is in its ability to create a response within the reader. My writing creates interest, response, and sales.
I have been freelance writing for several years but recently began to devote my entire workday to freelancing opportunities. With extensive experience in writing, editing and proofreading, I am also proficient at PowerPoint creation, Excel and database management. I am able to write on a variety of subjects, and have earned a reputation with my former coworkers as being able to pick up a misspelling or be able to correct sloppy writing quickly and accurately. I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
From published musician interviews to ghost written bylined articles on the evolution of hybrid Satellite/Fiber network, I have spent a career writing a little bit about anything. Truth be told I thrive on it. As an 8+ year PR professional, my most most recent position as VP of eclat Marketing Inc., I know how to capture the intended message of the client and cultivate in such a way as to best reach the targeted audience. I have written press releases, press pitches, by-lined articles, white papers, product descriptions, website content, speeches, interviews, music reviews, comedy sketches, television pilots, poetry, short stories, and even writing job personal overviews.
