What’s Your Story?

Need a stellar concept or copy to differentiate your brand or campaign?

Maybe you’re short on professionalism or originality across everything clients (and prospective clients!) see.

Or perhaps you’re looking for a seasoned writer/producer to shape memorable written narrative –  for video or print.

Ring a bell?  If so, my story goes like this:

I’m a seasoned freelance writer/producer with solid branding instincts, a knack for nailing  desired voice, and an adeptness for adding zest without jeopardizing professional tone.

I started out in TV, on series including TLC’s Trading Spaces, A&E’s Biography, and Discovery Channel’s Cash Cab – primarily as an researcher, off-camera interviewer, and post-production scriptwriter (known in TV as a story producer).  Then copywriting, editing, branding, and ghostwriting work started rolling in, because, well…ever notice you attract things that play on your strengths?  Life’s cool like that.

Ongoing clients include Philadelphia PBS member station WHYY, Men’s Health, Prevention, Women’s Health, Philadelphia’s University of the Arts, and several DIY Network/HGTV on-camera hosts who can hammer better than they can write!  In 2015, I conceptualized, wrote, and produced WHYY’s most-shared original television program to date.

Lifetime and NBC Sports Network are more recent television clients.  I also routinely provide services for B2B and B2c companies seeking branding or marketing copy as well as creative direction.

In 2007, I became the then-youngest author to write an installment of Arcadia Publishing’s Images of America book series.  As a journalist, I’ve had stories published in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Denver’s 5280 magazine, Weird New Jersey, Antenna-Free TV, Media Bistro, and South Jersey Magazine, among others.  I love history, urban living, city planning, documentaries, quirky stories, and quirkier people.  Usually.

So pull up a chair, literally or otherwise, and reach out to me at burrows928@gmail.com for copywriting, concepting, producing, or ghostwriting needs.
