Here’s a list of work from elsewhere on the internet. Beware what’s old and wrinkly. If a link is broken I’ll scrounge for bandages. Roughly sorted by most recent.
Yes, I’ll write for you.
I’m currently the Head of Content! Snoop around our site where I’ve woven words into the purple matrix.
Jul. 22, 2020: Rideshur.com won an award!
Working with the Head of Content to guide users down the marketing funnel (always feel like a water park attendant when I say that).
I wrote the guide for migrating from Gmail to ProtonMail.
Worked on Setapp for 1+ years. It’s a SaaS product that serves hundreds of apps at a fixed subscription fee.
Most of the website copy is mine, including the tagline. Also redesigned UX flows in the member cabinet.
Here’s a Dropbox folder with email newsletters and updates. As the only native English writer on the team, I wrote all of these.
Wrote some SEO-fluffed content like this. It’s a copywriter’s rite of passage, but most will agree content marketing is a slog (CM strategy can be interesting though).
Did some YouTube influencer ad scripts. Heard of Unbox Therapy?
In the early days of Medium, before just anyone could monetize, I was asked to write for their premium paywall. It was a good run before clickbait invaded—now Medium’s kinda f*cked.
Pitched, approved, and paid handsomely:
These folks asked me to review their products:
Some scholarly word-sling on tattoo ethics. Do you really own your tattoos?
Worked for a short time on a video Q&A startup that’s now stardust. Wrote this to promo.
More musings on sustainability:
Early published poetry:
Hot Press Magazine
Worked at Hot Press in Dublin as a guest reporter. Not to reveal anything too gritty, but the bulk of assignments were bull. I squeezed out at least one proud piece below. Here are the rest if you’re interested.
Ah, tomcast. In my youth, one thing led to the next and I found myself hosting a regional TV show. On actual television.
I’ve archived the seriously embarrassing episodes to spare you—just trust me.
Here’s Episode 5 for a small taste.
Dec. 19, 2020: I’ve decided to remove all videos from my channel because YouTube is a tyrannical gatekeeper. Copyright claims were automatically attached to videos wherein I interviewed artists I then briefly sampled as a reference for viewers.
At one point, it morphed from TV to an Apple Podcast:
Oy, you’re a snoop. Back to the ivy days. Well, not ivy as in Ivy, but I think we had some green brick-crawlers somewhere.
Senior year, I pitched a startup idea and won 2nd place. Shortly after, Apple came out with eerily similar Screen Time.
Ask me over a beer.
