Here to Help.

Hey there. I'm Jason Gonzales (with an s). I'm a creative thinker with a background in writing and a love for music. Over the last 15 years, I’ve written for pretty much every type of product and industry, namely CPG, restaurants, healthcare, education and tourism. I've solved complex business problems, led pitches that helped win millions in business and developed integrated work that didn't tick the usual boxes. If hired to do these things for you, a portion of the proceeds will benefit my mortgage, significant other and our cats, though not necessarily in that order.
