ABOUT | Ellen Hall, Copywriter

I’ve been an advertising and marketing copywriter in the San Francisco Bay Area for 13 years,
working for clients as diverse as Bath & Body Works, Lowe’s Home Improvement, and
Mountain Travel Sobek. If it contains words, I can write it: web sites, brochures, interactive
ads, radio spots, you name it. I know the ins and outs of broadcast production as well as
more than I ever thought I would about things like bath tiles and the best time of year to
trek the Cordillera Blanca.

I’ve worked on a freelance or full-time basis for a number of agencies and organizations,
from established companies like Old Navy, CNET, Voicebox Creative, Nimblefish, and
J. Walter Thompson, to startups like My Little Swans and PopularMedia.

In a previous incarnation, I was an Art Director, and received a B.A. in Graphic Design
from San Jose State University.
