My extensive background in all forms of online and print media should speak for itself, so please see my portfolio and my Creativepool profile (http://creativepool.com/bhiorns) for evidence of my diverse skill-set.
My initial gateway into copywriting was through journalism. Having earned a sparse living as a singer/songwriter in numerous bands for almost a decade, in 2009 I decided to try my hand at the other end of the musical spectrum; critiquing. After a few years spent as a freelance music journalist, this eventually led to a career in professional copywriting. My writing is insightful, crisp, compelling, often laced with acerbic humour (when called for) and always 100% honest. My years as a journalist helped shaped the copy that would later earn me a role at Creativepool, the creative industry web portal, where I am still a chief contributor. I am, however, as a freelancer, always on the lookout for additional challenges that will make the best use of my existing skills and experience and also further my personal development.
In my career as a copywriter I have tried my hand at everything from websites and blogs, to reviews, interviews, marketing materials, email blasts, newsletters, mobile applications, brochures, sales flyers, print ads, commercials and more. I have a unique ability to analyse the needs of my clients and can deliver a very quick turnaround when required. I am passionate about providing powerful, insightful and characterful copy that exceeds expectations. At present I work freelance for a variety of copywriting firms delivering a number of diverse projects on a monthly basis, and also as an assistant editor at Creativepool, where I am currently mandated to contribute five pieces per week.
Outside of writing copy, I am also still a keen musician, with a new album in the works. My previous bands, Dead Letter Office and Rubicava, allowed me to live as a semi-professional musician for a time, but my current band, Savestate, is a significantly more casual project. I am also currently writing my first novel.
