    Kim Leach

    The Message Therapist

    Australia - Tests: 4 - Portfolio: 3

    I'm an award-winning writer with two decades' experience in film, television, radio and internet communications. I have an insatiable passion for words; for combining them to entertain, inform and, though I hate to admit it since my father was a car salesman and I wanted to be a black sheep, to sell stuff. With a background in television advertising, I'm particularly skilled in promotional copy, creative strategy and branding. Having written short films, novels and documentaries, I have an impressive track record in long-form writing. And having worked non-stop in the media for twenty years, I know how to deliver high-quality content in high-pressure situations. I'm also passionate about cats and board games, but that’s irrelevant and doesn't belong in my Upwork profile, especially not at the end where it's the last thing you’ll remember. Note to self, hire that scribe who likes cats and cards.
