Jordan Sowards - Résumé

I’m a Senior Copywriter with 12 years of agency experience who has been told by clients, colleagues, supervisors, and my wife (my #1 fan) that my title doesn’t begin to cover the contributions I make and the value I bring. But it’s really hard to think of another title that doesn’t sound like pretentious, overblown, ad-industry waffle—so Senior Copywriter will just have to do for now. It feels unnatural to sell myself without some degree of self-deprecation, but these things are all true, so through gritted teeth I humbly present my exceptional qualifications.
