Cameron Higgins

Senior Copywriter

Location icon United States

My name is Cam Higgins and I'm a Southern ex-ski bum turned New York-dwelling wordsmith. By day, I'm a varsity copywriter/editor and journalist. By night, I'm a junior-varsity novelist who went to college, Jackson Hole, then Columbia for my Masters in Creative Writing.

I am a shameless nerd for language. Crafting concise and fiery sentences is my absolute jam.  There’s nothing I dig more than turning an undressed word salad into a hearty dish. When I don't have my nose to the page, I snowboard, mountain bike, read novels, surf, scratch cats under the chin and eat Tex-Mex as much as possible.
