Jonathan H. Butz

Hi, I'm Jon. I'm a professional writer based in Seattle.



Attention spans are more constrained than ever in today's fast-paced media landscape; every word must pull its weight. That's why I take the time to get to know my clients and their project goals, distilling and synthesizing their input into impactful copy that evokes, delights, and converts.

I'm a quick study with a wide range and ample experience matching tone to message, medium, and audience. I've written for lean startups, artists, musicians, Fortune 500 companies, and financial institutions.

Let's work together to help grow your business today.
