ABOUT ME

So far on my life's strange journey, I've written advertising campaigns, social media content, direct mail pieces for non-profits, website copy, and legal memoranda, among other things. Once, I spent an entire day writing copy in mustard on bologna sandwiches. 

 

I'm currently a senior copywriter in Austin, TX. If you'd like to chat, you can find me in the following places, or at thatguystevejacobs [at] gmail.com.
