Sarah is a copywriter at Sanders/Wingo in Austin. (Her site was submitted by Nikki Lott at Integer. High-five, Nikki.) One of the things MC enjoys most, going through a CW’s portfolio, is seeing their personality come through the work. Spend 30 seconds on Sarah’s site, and you see it. Bad-ass. Also, be sure to check out her rad blog Badder Homes & Gardens, with Nikki and Krista Hogg. Awesome.

Scott Maney, Chief Creative Officer at Breakaway in Boston (and friend of MC) is looking for a writer. From Scott: “Small, very unique shop of 15 in Boston. Less than 2 years old. Starting to explode with new work. Looking for a writer who can, and wants to, handle everything from TV to print to digital to social to product development. A lot of sports and lifestyle work. An energy brand. Consumer tech. Creatively-focused consumer products. Launching a new fashion e-commerce site. The list seems to grow every week. We have a venture capital arm too so we invest in cool companies. Definitely not the old school ad agency model.” Interested? Awesome. Email Scott at the address below.

Kapil is a freelance writer/CD in Boston. Before going full-time global freelance superstar, he spent five years at Modernista!, but really MC can’t list everywhere he’s worked because it’s pretty much everywhere awesome. As copywriters, what we do is commerce and art. Some a little more commerce. Some a little more art. When you land on Kapil’s site, you immediately know. It’s art.

Erik is a copywriter/CD at Goodby in San Francisco. He shares a portfolio site with partner/AD Anthony Decarolis, and their work is just ridiculous awesome. MC had a tough time selecting which piece to feature, but you can’t go wrong with Cheetos Flamin’ Hot fingers dialing 911. Brilliant.

Mike is a copywriter/CD in Dallas. He spent a serious chunk of time at The Richards Group (12 years), and his Behance portfolio is full of all kinds of Home Depot work—including the above billboard that hung at Texas Stadium, home of the Dallas Cowboys, owned by Jerry Jones. MC is neutral in all matters, and respects all 50 states, including Texas which is home to more than one great city and many, many awesome, creative people. But there’s no denying it. There’s only one Texas.
