Spring 2022

I’ve received this testimonial after rewriting the website for a client in Spain:

“English is not my first language, my idea and my website needed a copywriter. I searched a lot with bad experiences included, until I met David. He took the time to understand me and my idea, and in a few days I had the content ready in correct English, a marketing vision and help with SEO. Now I know where to go when I need content from a professional.”
