My name is Courtney, and I've been manipulating people with my words since the 1980s.
Today i'm a creative director and copywriter based in beautiful Boulder, Colorado. I have a background in journalism and 10+ years experience working for some of the most dynamic ad agencies in the country. I love to help brand new companies develop their voice, and the big boys discover fresh ways to explore the ones they're known for. I'm a word nerd at heart and a straightforward, strategic thinker by practice.
I've also flirted with a career in law enforcement, so please help keep me employed.
