After eight years or so, I ran out of free red pens! I may have a few lying around somewhere, but I assure you, the ink is dried out by now. So why is this page still here? Because I despise dead links as a matter of principle.

I'm a freelance advertising copywriter, by the way, someone you could hire on a project basis to write your ads, brochures, website, mailers, and other marketing materials. If that sounds like something you could use, then please, stick around and explore what I have to offer you! If not, well, thank you for your interest, please accept my apologies, and have a great day!
