Josh Alkire

Senior Copywriter

United States

I began my career in advertising, spending 10 years in agencies in and around the Toledo area. Along the way, I wrote copy for several different types of clients and developed a keen eye for the rules of grammar, spelling and punctuation.

At Ohio Northern University, I created original copy for a variety of different communications – everything from billboards to press releases to multi-page magazine articles. We also produced many admissions pieces: postcards and brochures for colleges and academic programs.

In addition to writing original copy, I maintained the university style guide. It was my responsibility to review every piece that left the office, giving me the ability to edit for the appropriate audience and purpose.
