    frequently asked questions

    Why should I hire you?

    I'm an excellent copywriter.

    Okay. Got any proof?

    Well, I've worked for some big names like Salesforce, Microsoft Azure, Priceline, McKesson, Carnival Cruise Line, Hewlett-Packard, Colgate-Palmolive Blackberry, Xbox, Nokia... 

    Lots of people work for big names. Have you won any awards?

    I used to just say, "no".  Now I say, "I've been nominated, but haven't yet won".  Given this trajectory, someday this section might just be a nice little trophy case.

    Keep dreaming.

    I will!  But I don't dream of awards, honestly.  I dream of solid writing and really happy clients that want to hire me again and again.

    That's what someone with no awards would say.

    Look.  I don't work at a huge agency.  I'm a writer working from home with two small kids - one hanging off each arm.  I used my passion for writing and sales to build my copywriting business from scratch.  My first job paid $0 an hour.  My current rates have zeros on the end, not the beginning.  To me, that's an award.  Hell, every new job is an award!

    All right. Enough with the dramatic monologue. Just show me your stuff.
