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…
A tight, hyper-focused London agency where I constructed clean copy for clients like Rideshur, Hive Streaming, Percent, Skupos, and UpScript.
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.
From idea to execution, I led an original influencer marketing campaign. Skip to travel blogger Jack Morris’s post or Sam Kolder’s post.
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?
And announcements. More SEO stuff. One more for good measure.
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:
Sustainability in the Startup Era
The Catharsis of Simplification
Tomorrow’s Carbon Valley
Coding the Creator
One Nation Over God
AI: The New God
The Word Was Google
These folks asked me to review their products:
Watch for L’Heure Luxe
The Aphrodite of Productivity
HyperX—Your Next Specs?
Felix Gray—Yay or Nay?
Firefly Music Festival took me on as independent press to interview artists and capture the vibe. Here’s before and after coverage from good ol’ 2017.
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:
Adequacy, Apathy, and the Last Cookie
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.
Kaleidoscope’s “the mask, the muse & Mishima”
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:
Ep. 1 Wilderado
Ep. 2 Sofi Tukker
Ep. 3 ROZES
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.
Made a really, really short documentary. Edited this gruesome video. Covered the 2016 clown fiasco for the school paper.
Ask me over a beer.
