If you’re looking for a soft spoken writer with a quick wit
YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE
I’m Micah, a copywriter for creative entrepreneurs.
So many entrepreneurs and business leaders believe the cliché that if you simply follow your heart, the money will follow. Sound familiar? But pure creativity doesn’t mean you can ignore economics or human behavior. That's why I marry the art of writing with the science of writing. I focus a little less on fanciful prose, and a little more on defining, matching, and positioning your brand voice for success. Through years of working with clients with diverse needs, I’ve mastered the formulas and strategies that turn prospective clients into loyal customers (AKA brand groupies).
Now when I say formulas, I mean writing formulas. As a homeschool kid, I spent most of my days reading and writing because, well, my mom wasn’t a big fan of math and science. The obsession stuck, and I went on to earn my bachelors degree in writing and to work in digital marketing, social media management, and copywriting (don't worry, I eventually learned how to balance an equation).
Friends were constantly asking me to edit their papers, write their resumes, and spruce up their LinkedIn bios. I realized my skills met a need in the world: helping people solve actual problems through writing.
I embraced my inner copy nerd and committed to helping others magnify their message.
Although I stay in my lane these days, I believe a great copy writer should know enough about related fields to be a strong team member. Copy informs design and vice versa. My skills in graphic design, web design, and photography enrich my work and make me a valuable partner to any project or team.

I have a degree in creative writing from Pepperdine University. Go Waves!

I'm a fun lovin' gal, but I don't mess around when it comes to
Generosity of time and spirit.
It pays to be kind.

Listen to understand first, not to fix.
