Jared's obsession with copywriting began as soon as he was old enough to read. He stole copies of J. Peterman, Things You Never Knew Existed, The Sharper Image, and Hammacher Schlemmer from the family's mail and kept them underneath his mattress.

Years later, when he returned from studying English at university, the collection was missing. He still wonders what his mother thought when she found them.

It is no surprises that today Jared writes engaging product descriptions, travel narratives, food articles, and educational content. He writes for commonly known brands, travel sites, food blogs and regional leaders in education.

Jared knows the key to creating great content is understanding what clients want. Consequently, he asks the significant questions to create clean, concise and actionable content.

Jared's ability to offer quality and prompt content makes him a favorite among clients. As a result, his clients endorse him and leave great reviews:

"Jared did a great job for me. He was flexible and understanding ... ."

"I appreciated his ability to connect with my audience and convey the information clearly and sensitively."

"Great writer. Very responsive!"
