Robert Borges

tyranny

Robert is a freelance copywriter/CD in Denver. One of MC’s favorite things about running MC is getting to see the different paths that writers take to becoming awesome writers & CDs. From Robert: “I’ve lived some life, been some places, worked mostly in the ad biz on some cool brands, at some cool shops. I’m a classic late bloomer: graduated college @27, took up fishing @28, snowboarding @32, Harley Riding @37, currently mastering the nuances of FB community management.” Yup. That’s how you do it.

Mark is a senior copywriter at DigitasLBi in NYC. Sometimes you click through a writer’s site and you can tell that the person on the other end of the portfolio just loves making stuff. Definitely the case with Mark’s site. After “Selected Work” (password for protected projects, including featured spot above, is ‘happy’), don’t miss “Side Projects” and “Etc.” Good times.
