CHRIS JAY

multimedia storytelling / social media / clean copy

I am a professional writer with a background in social media management and a broad range of digital media production capabilities. The only thing that I love more than the craft of writing is the art of creating engagement. I'd love the opportunity to tell your story in a way that is informative, effective and designed to be shared.

CHANGE IS BREWING, COUNTRY ROADS

TINKER AND THE SATURDAY NIGHT CAR, ALL Y'ALL

Sept. 7, 2014

With my wife and business partner, Sara Hebert, I co-created the popular All Y'all live storytelling event series in Shreveport. Chris Kirkley's story from 2014 is still among my favorite stories we've ever recorded.

The opportunity to tell a story is an honor. I strive to approach each assignment with professionalism, curiosity and humility.

In other words: I file copy on time,  graciously accept edits, and treat subjects the way that I'd like to be treated.
