Copywriting

Apart from names and slogans, I’ve built up my Top Rated status through copy and article writing, and have been published on Forbes, OMNI (Futurism), Geeks, Longevity, Potent, Beat, Journal, and other sites! Recently one of my Kindle books ranked #1 in the Amazon free Science Fiction category.

Under my small indie company Sable Mare Media, LLC, I operate the sci-fi website ScumHive.com and the digital nomad site, WhyAreYouStillWorking.com.

Here are a few links to my work…:

I’ve written catchy copy for ESL blogs, commercial websites, radio ads, Choose Your Own Adventure apps, escape rooms, marketers, and as mentioned, companies seeking creative branding and slogans.

So why hire me?

Because no kidding, you’ll get my best efforts. Not only that but you’ll see I’m client-focused, friendly, timely…and understanding of your editorial feedback!
