I accept any and all copy challenges.
After graduating CUNY Hunter College with a degree in Media Studies in 2007, I ventured into the real world to put my writing chops to work. My career started in traditional broadcast media, made a two-year stopover in PR and landed me in the ad world--where I'm quite happy, thanks for asking. Having been a mere college sophomore when Facebook started gaining critical mass, it's pretty cool to be writing brands' Facebook posts, among other things, for a living.
Writing has always been a passion of mine, from diligently penning journals in high school to blogging for an independent music review after college to crafting copy for brands as an agency creative. Over 7 years' experience working both agency- and client-side has offered me the opportunity to write for a wide range of brands, including the SUSHISAMBA restaurant group, Marriott (Courtyard and SpringHill Suites), Aflac, Sally Hansen, Rimmel London US, Listerine, Google, Weight Watchers, the Montana Office of Tourism, Elizabeth Arden, CND Shellac, Babyganics and Walmart.
I am eager to apply my skills ideating, writing and presenting creative to all aspects of advertising be it traditional, digital, social or a mixture of all three.
Oh, and when I'm not writing for brands, I sometimes write over here: christinejessie.wordpress.com
