    I write smart, creative copy that your clients will love. I’m an experienced copywriter, editor, and SEO consultant based in Ottawa. I help entrepreneurs, small businesses and advertising agencies to create great content. I also offer training and speaking presentations. I’m responsible for every piece of work I produce for my clients. Nope, there’s no room packed with minions pumping out copy – I don’t outsource or sub-contract. You see, I guarantee the highest quality and the only person I can really trust to get the job done just right, every time, is me. What’s in it for you? Professional, reliable and enthusiastic copywriting services. A range of digital skills with social media platforms, WordPress and more. Affordable rates and super-fast turnarounds. A pleasant and positive experience with someone who understands sales and branding. When it comes to experience, I’ve got some serious hard-won wisdom that goes into each and every bit of creative copy that I produce. I began my career as a merchandising manager, moved into marketing, and then copywriting. Over the years, I’ve worked as a Quality Assurance Manager, Copywriter and Content Manager at various companies. This taught me the hard way how to write epic content, meet deadlines, keep clients happy and produce excellent ideas under pressure. I’ve also worked as a helpline operator, personal shopper, academic researcher and barista. Surprisingly, all of this comes in handy when I’m writing your copy. You’ll enjoy working with me, promise :) More often than not, my clients come from referrals. I strive to ‘over deliver’, delight my clients and achieve results. It’s how I know they’ll come back!

    I love creating stories

    United States - Last active: 09/11/2013 - Tests: 8 - Portfolio: 4

    I’ve always loved to tell stories. I recently graduated from the University of Redlands, where I studied Creative Writing and learned to understand stories as not only a powerful form of self-expression, but also as a practical means of communicating information. I believe that storytellers must explore new forms, including interactive and non-linear narratives, in order to capture distracted imaginations. I may not have as much experience as some of the other writers on here, but I have talent, energy, and a fresh perspective on the craft.
