I’ve been a copywriter since 1991 and I’ve worked almost exclusively in interactive since 1994. I have extensive experience in a number of categories including financial services, home improvement, technology, automotive, telecommunications, and OTC drugs, but I like to work on lots of different sorts of things. I was an ACD at a larger firm (CKS) and a CD at boutique shop. I’ve been freelance since 2001. I’m happy to run the creative side of your project or consult on some particular aspect of it, or concept your next site or 360° campaign, or just write it. In my spare time I direct plays, write and direct movies and cartoons, and record with my band, The County Kings. I live in Brooklyn with my wife, Maria, and our two kids: Harry (9) and Isabel (7).
