Jim D

Sr. Creative Writer
If you need someone to fill a page with words, that's not me. That's Chat GBT. I listen, interview, question, then go away and come back with what I hope are ideas and words that get to the core of what you want and need to say in ways you can't. I approach everything I write, from speeches to outdoor ads, the same way: someone has very, very little time with you. How do I get them to stay there and want to know more after?
