Hello! You’ve stumbled upon the personal blog and portfolio of Richard Bashara, a copywriter based out of Los Angeles. I have an extensive projects section that I invite you to take a look at (It’s a work in progress) if you’re interested in hiring me. If you’re just here to learn more about me, read on!
I have a degree in English from California State University Northridge that was signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger and given to me by Cheech Marin. Cheech told me to “go fly” and I’ve been trying to live up to those words ever since. I majored in English with an emphasis on Writing, but I’m also an A+ certified technician with a passion for technology.
My background in marketing and writing began with a small comic store in the San Fernando Valley. I worked with Europe and North America’s largest software provider on a pet project of theirs, and helped create a knowledgebase for their most utilized product. I used that experience to parlay a successful freelance career built on quality copywriting and blogging.
This blog is where I record my thoughts on copywriting, technology, and everything else I haven’t published elsewhere.
I hope that the writing you see here, and around the Web, speaks to you.
-Richard S. Bashara
