RssOrlando CopyQueen seeks to reign in New York

Hello! My name is Jessica Gilston and I’ve perfected and practiced my passion for creating unparalleled copy for over 8 years. I find nothing more fulfilling than writing impactful and persuasive copy that gets the job done. I'm highly motivated, creative, resourceful, quirky, thrive under pressure, have a great sense of humor and absolutely LOVE what I do. I'm passionate about writing. Passionate about advertising. Passionate about being surrounded by a great team of creatives that don't take themselves SO seriously that their work begins to suffer. I'm not afraid to jump out of the box and leave it at home, only to return to it occasionally for clean socks. On the flip side, I'm well versed at coloring within the corporate lines. I'm passionate about doing my job and doing it efficiently and effectively and most of all correctly. I’m a grammatical stickler, always pressing to provide perfect sentences. I am: An established wordsmith. I possess: A versatile style, speed, creative flair and marketing acumen. I will: Hammer out words that persuade, move and sell. My copy capabilities go beyond the average word to evoke an emotional response in all audiences... resulting in dynamic creative solutions for your brand. As a seasoned copywriter with agency and corporate experience, I’m fully equipped to uncover possibilities, develop the big idea and execute flawless and effective campaigns in all mediums, with specialization in interactive.
