Meet Timothy P. – Copywriter
1. What is your favorite part of your job?
My favorite part of my job is being able to participate in brainstorm sessions, and just flushing out as much copy or ideas as possible.
2. Who/What inspires you?
Life is totally a huge inspiration for me. Especially, living in NYC, you’re always seeing and experiencing a lot – giving me plenty to write about. Another thing that inspires me is other creatives (copywriters and art directors) whom I’ve met over the years.
3. How did you get into your current career?
Initially, I was creating writing and content for several lifestyle blogs that focused on men’s premium brands/urban street wear (before and during college). I started off my copywriting career working for an ad agency called Burrell Communications in Chicago. At the time, I’d just graduated from college and finished my portfolio classes (Columbia College Chicago) and decided to send the Chief Creative Officer, Lewis Williams, a message via LinkedIn. Luckily, he replied back, brought me in for an interview, and gave me a chance to begin my career as a copywriter.
