SUMMARY

I have an intense affinity for the customer journey and the brand narrative. Because I’m fluent in data and can translate it into creative storytelling, I’ve transformed low-performing campaigns into lauded success stories of high conversions. Beyond the traditional copywriter role, I transcend into content strategist, art director and mentor.
