Copywriter (self-employed/ freelance)

Writing and editing copy for a variety of clients in many industries. Largely long-form sales letters, newsletters, VSLs, but also a good amount of social media content, video scripts, funnel design and KPI evaluation, phone sales scripts, customer retention strategies and copy, etc.

I’ve done it all, yielding consistent improvements in conversions across multiple verticals:

Lead Database Engineer (GTT Sp. z o. o. - Warsaw)

June 2008 to August 2009

Designed, developed and maintained complex geodesic databases spanning most of Poland in multiple formats, including reverse-engineering the MikroMap format and creating a system for importing, transposing and converting between various coordinate systems used by the Polish government.

The final stack allowed for free manipulation of data points, complex comparisons between datasets, importing and exporting from predefined formats, including the proprietary MikroMap (.mmp) format. The system automated the largest time-sink in the company, which was compiling and exporting maps of properties and relevant data points. Previously, the process involved manually finding the relevant coordinates (frequently in incompatible coordinate systems), compiling a list, transposing them into whatever coordinate system was required, and finally manually copying over the coordinates and notes into a new file.

This often weeks-long process became little more than entering the desired coordinate, a radius of data points to export, and pressing enter, with the desired data delivered instantly.

Technologies used:

  • MySQL
  • Perl
  • Bash
  • Linux
  • Windows
  • MikroMap
  • Microsoft Excel
