About January

I dream up things and write for ads, apps and amazing projects for a living. I'm like Salvador Dali — but with a laptop (and thesaurus).

Life plot twist: I wasn't always like this. When I was seven, I could find nothing remotely thrilling about writing. It was just a means to getting a grade. In kid-life, it was actually more like nails on a chalkboard. One time I even faked sick just so I could get out of writing the weekly 10 sentence requirement in second grade (don't tell mom). Now look at me: sentences are my life! Yet it's the thoughts behind the words that got me into the ad business — and the great teachers who saw something behind my storytelling (they were the ones who whipped my grammar and big ideas into shape).

Today, I'm a word chameleon when it comes to crafting different ideas, strategies and tones. I welcome variety. Maybe that's why I ended up where I am (from a feature writing journalist to a copywriter): Not to check off a career box, but to check off my passions (writing, concepting, creativity) all rolled up into one job.
