A copywriter who paints pictures with words, that's me. Website content, press releases, newsletters, online or press recruitment advertisements, concepts, profile pages, micro sites, radio or video scripts, headlines, banners, brochures, sales materials or pitch work, I've done them all Indeed, I've been a freelance copywriter (and part-time house husband) for years now. Before that, I worked at several recruitment advertisingmarketing agencies as a 'suit', reaching the heady heights of Account Director, having started out in advertising sales for national and regional newspapers and a London sales house. As well as regularly writing recruitment copy for the web and press, recent copywriting projects include producing web content for the new Reed Global website (over pages of copy), writing copy for of James Caan's Hamilton Bradshaw businesses websites, plus producing a Saturday College prospectus for my local college. During my time at advertising agencies I worked across pretty much every industry sector, with clients that ranged from the BBC (at the time the biggest recruitment account in the business) to Kent County Council and Robert Half and Reed to CurrysDixons. I also used to write copy as a favour for fellow account handlers, in order to meet a looming deadline. What's more, during my years in classified advertising, I wrote and edited copy for literally hundreds of organisations. Throw in my experience of taking briefs, relaying them to creative teams and delivering the right solution to the client, and the decision to write copy for a living made complete sense. Indeed, my advertising agency experience has given me a flair for intuitively grasping a brief. Be warned though - I don't do dull. I'm a creative writer. That means I write copy that has a professional but friendly tone to it that the reader warms to, rather than moves on from.
