Ethan Jacobs

Copywriter, Editor, Ghostwriter

I research tirelessly and collaborate with clients from different industries to craft unique content. Nothing gets me as excited as helping someone get their ideas out on paper.

With over seven years of professional writing experience under my belt, I’ve been fortunate enough to work with clients ranging from burgeoning start-ups to major corporations in an array of industries. As a writer, I'm no stranger to crafting the odd blog post or press release, but prefer applying my skills as an exhaustive researcher to composing longer, research-based articles. With the dry wit of an under-appreciated British butler and the concise wording of a military dossier, most things I write cover big ideas in small spaces.
I take immense pride in my work--particularly as an editor--and am passionate about all things spelling, grammar, punctuation, and usage. I love the creative outlet that writing affords me and recently spent an additional fifteen minutes on an article that I'd already completed so that I could figure out a way to work in an alliteration string of 11 words beginning with the letter S. I'm often described as "meticulous" and "serious" by those who meet me for the first time, though those that get to know me typically find me to be very approachable and laid back.
Though I love tackling new topics, my area of expertise is in corporate social responsibility (CSR) and sustainability (there's no abbreviation for sustainability), along with other topics of a similar nature, such as social impact and human rights. I studied Philosophy and Economics as an undergrad and went on to work in a variety of roles for various CSR consultancies thereafter, which is where I honed my skills writing subject-specific articles.
I'm obsessed with going beyond what needs to be done on a given project. I strive to make everything I produce as clear and concise as possible, making sure to turn in deliverables well-beforehand in the event that something needs tweaking. If you need someone that can communicate big ideas simply, look no further. Let's get to work!

Very Superstitious

In reading through a recent report, I found that an astonishingly high percentage of respondents to surveys in sub-Saharan Africa believed in family planning myths regarding the spread of HIV and the use of contraceptives. This article gets to the bottom of how these beliefs come to be, who spreads them, and why they're so difficult to debunk once they begin circulating.

Risky Business

This is an article I had a lot of fun with. I was curious about why teens are more likely to do poorly-planned (stupid) things and wanted to find a psychological (biological and social) explanation for such behavior. To make sure the article wasn't too dry, I used pop-culture films (The Sandlot, Risky Business, Ferris Bueller's Day Off, among others) as examples of concepts I was explaining to demonstrate what's going on in a teenager's mind when they do the things they do.

How Much For a Baby?

This is a long-form article that I researched extensively, looking into teen pregnancy rates in developed and developing nations around the world. From there, I accessed academic journals as primary resources in order to craft an exhaustive article that shows readers what the associated costs of teen pregnancy are for the teen parents themselves, the kids born to teen parents, and the societies in which the teen parents live.

The Case Against In-Kind Donations to the Philippines

This post was a blog that I wrote in the wake of Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines in 2013. I mixed very basic research with my own knowledge of "good vs. bad charity" to appeal to readers to think before they allowed their sympathy to drive them to donate goods that would lead to more problems than solutions.
