Paul Wilcox's Summary

UPDATE:

Having just returned from sabbatical in the Himalayas, visiting Norway to witness the aurora borealis, and meeting with world leaders in The Hague, I am returning to what really matters – advertising copywriting and concepting.

Refreshed and enlightened, I am now launching my two-fold mission to (A) expand my freelance writing business or (B) transition to a full-time agency gig.



That being said, please tell your friends in the upper echelons of the ad biz that I'm available to help, starting pretty much right now. Is right now good for you?

For a crash course in my writing and conceptual capabilities, please go to my portfolio/resume site – www.paulwilcoxcreative.com
