    Experienced corporate professional and writer.

    United States - Last active: 11/20/2014 - Tests: 1

    I am an experienced corporate professional (with military experience as a junior officer) that possesses strong organizational, writing and analytical skills. I have a Bachelors of Business Administration (BBA) from Texas A&M University - Kingsville and was a member of the Army ROTC program where I was commissioned as a Second Lieutenant in the U.S. Army upon graduation. I spent 4 years as an Army officer and have a depth of knowledge of military writing style, jargon and acronyms. I have spent the past seven years working for a Fortune 100 company (railway transportation) and the past 3 years have been spent working as an administrative director for the largest division in my company (4000 employees) where I created formal responses and letters to upper management within my company, labor organizations we work with, individual employees as well as members of surrounding communities our company operates in. I have also traveled abroad (Russia, Cyprus, Spain, Germany, Armenia, Hungary, Austria, Italy, Croatia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Qatar, Kuwait, Bahrain, Iraq, Oman, Pakistan, Mexico and Canada) and understand various cultures around the world. My position also required that I become the resident expert regarding the organized labor contracts that existed within my company. At any given time, I have been required to work with employee work groups that have five different labor contracts among them, each with specific work, pay and discipline requirements. I was responsible for editing a bi-monthly newsletter sent out to our employees, the web content for our division website and the weekly broadcasts that were sent via internal television channels. I also have extensive experience reviewing transcripts from disciplinary investigations within my company. My position as director of administration also made me an informal assistant to the general manager for my division (a railroad GM is equivalent to a vice president in most other companies) and performed tasks for him such as managing his calendar and travel plans, writing letters and emails on his behalf and representing him at meetings.

They have the ability to soothe, hypnotize, agitate, or energize. They are a weapon to be used with care and precision, requiring mastery of both pace and tone. Because of my experiences in the film industry, both with screenwriting and physical production, as well as having nearly 8 years of experience in the field of copywriting, I have become accustomed to free flowing creative interaction, and concise and efficient communication. I have also come to appreciate the necessity for candor, criticism, and honesty when deadlines and budgets simply cannot be compromised. Because businesses and sales are moving more and more away from handshaking and into satellite negotiations, companies, perhaps more than ever, need writers who can make connections, evoke emotion, and incite action through the power of the written word. People see too much "advertising," and will not give you long to excite them, which is why good copywriters are direct, persuasive and efficient. The copywriter is the gateway to your potential customers. But today's copywriter must be more than that. They must be part psychologist, part public relations. They have to be able to translate complex thoughts and business jargon into relatable text any layman can grasp. They need to be teachers, and sellers, and friends to your client base. These necessary elements that a copywriter must possess are my strengths. I spent nearly 15 years in the film industry, which taught me politics and persuasion. I'm a trained life coach, which means I know how to read and inspire people. I have contracted and currently contract for companies like Warner Bros., Knot Standard, Cheap Caribbean, American Express, IHG, Travel + Leisure, MapQuest, Ariba and SAP, which means I'm very experienced in high-level marketing and ad copy. I was a full time screenwriter for more than ten years, which means I know how to produce dynamic elements with pace, rhythm and punch. I have written for film, television commercials/one hour dramas, and sitcoms. I have penned one sheets, taglines, synopses, pitches, professional bios, web content, proposals, press releases, SEO laden content, Meta Descriptions and Title Tags, marketing letters, business proposals, radio spots, game reviews, film reviews, :30 second television ads, and feature articles. I have been published many times online and in print and recently did some freelance work for Groupon. I believe I can offer you an excellent resource for fresh new material given the opportunity to do so. If you have a dropbox account, I have an online digital portfolio that is quite hefty. Please let me know and I’ll send you an invite, or be happy to mail you a hard copy of my portfolio at your request. I also have an extensive portfolio and resume on oDesk. I thank you in advance for your time and consideration. I look forward to hearing from you. Sincerely, Christopher Kusiak CLK Industries
