I am a conceptual, creative quick-thinker! I enjoy writing through-the-line and currently write all forms of print and web copy as well as radio and AV copy and social media implementation. I enjoy what I currently do to the point of being overzealous. I continuously seek new challenges that will stretch my creativity and engage my over active imagination.
