I'm a copywriter who embraces the strange.

And that's why I want to work with you.

No, really. My whole career is about embracing the weird, the dark, the random, and the stories that need to be told. It stems from a childhood spent reading lots of books, traveling to distant lands and (literally) hunting for ghosts.

Yes, that is the face of someone who hunted ghosts.  And two Texas Chainsaw Massacre t-shirts. And has a Slender Man backpack. I'm creepy, okay?

My career is centered around two big principles: Professionalism and creative, effective results.

Yes, I'm a gothic horror fan who collects Texas Chainsaw Massacre shirts. But I also value my reputation for being reliable, diligent, and doing the dirty work. I'll transcribe that interview. I'll tweak that social media copy. I'll compile that dossier. 

I welcome random requests. I embrace them.

I've worked with bloggers, podcasters, filmmakers, and companies that have changed the world.

And you know what? We've done amazing work together.

But beyond the stories, we've brought order to chaos. We've developed strategies that brought forth results. That's my specialty—taking your creative ideas and bringing in the strategy. I want your business to be successful. I have the skills to do it for you.

Also: I live in Portland, Oregon with my family.

The rain speaks to my soul. Also: Home of Leslie Vernon.
