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. Sorted by most recent.
Yes, I’ll write for you.
Huge x Google
Currently whipping up crafty UX copy for Android, Google for Education, Google TV, and Wear OS as Senior Copywriter at Huge.
Peep these live projects…
Jul. 22, 2020: Rideshur.com won an award!
Worked 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.
I was Head of Content for a year. Snoop around the site where I’ve woven words into the purple matrix.
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 was 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.
