The "Write" Words for Medium to Large-Sized Businesses Who Give a Hoot About Selling Their Products and Services
WHAT DO I DO? I write dynamic content that converts complex themes into reader-friendly English so it can communicate your company's message. I will provide your business or project with premium-quality, high-impact outcomes. English is my mother tongue, but I also speak, read, and write Latin American Spanish at an advanced level.
WHY DO I LOVE MY JOB?
By far, the reason I am so deeply enthusiastic about being a copywriter and marketing content specialist is because of the amazing people I get to work with every day. Each client has their own unique story to share, and I get to be the person who writes about it!
WHO AM I? I'm a native New Yorker who has been living in Panama since 1999, when I joined the Peace Corps. I served for three years as a Small Business and English Language volunteer. Before that, I studied in New York University's "15-year Switch Your Major Three Times" program, (oh, you didn't know they had that program? It was all the rage in the 80s and 90s!), and finally graduated with a BA in International Studies.
Somewhere along the way, I traveled as a backpacker for 1.5 years, became a Corporate Events Planner at the now-defunct Salomon Brothers Investment Bank, and became fluent in Spanish.
After my Peace Corps assignment ended, I opened and successfully operated The Purple House International Backpacker Hostel in David City, Panama. Amongst other things, I learned how to say "the bathroom is that way" in 34 different languages!
Great times and great people but after many years in the corporate world and the tourism industry, I decided to pursue the next chapter: Andrea Payme Freelance Writing Services!
