    Clutter-breaker extraordinaire.

    United States - Last active: 1 month ago - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 11

    You want to break through the clutter. I want to deliver content that does. Simple. Creative content and sales-driven messages are my fortes. I have developed marketing communications materials such as brochures, sales letters, press releases, product descriptions, TVC and RDC scripts, advertising copy and packaging copy for numerous successful brands. I like to think of myself as a versatile writer, and can tweak my style according to the intended audience, platform and message content. I have written and published hundreds of articles online, and my research skills are legendary. I think typos are the scourge of the earth, and my attention to detail borders on the perverse!
