    Writing that works

    Philippines - Last active: 4 hours ago - Portfolio: 4

    I regard myself as a creative, imaginative, non-traditional communicator of ideas using, (sometimes "playing" with) the English language. I do this not simply for the sake of being different but for my ideas (or my clients' ideas) to be noticed and absorbed, perhaps evoke some kind of a reaction from the reader, or an attitude change --as in the case of advertising copy. Otherwise, in my slice-of-life articles, blogs, essays and documentaries I strive to have my writing provocative, interesting and always imbued with an element that could potentially grab you. Clients should hire me precisely for these.
