Sebastian’s my name; rhyming’s my goal. At TimeZoneOne, I write and arrange words in manners delightful to people and artificial intelligence. You might find it helpful to talk to me if you would like something written, something jazzed up, or if you’d just like an idea or seventeen.

I love connecting with different audiences in persuasive, compelling and entertaining ways. If you need a page of direct, informative content, I’ll be there—but if you need something with a bit of wit, a bit of charm, and a bit of “I didn’t expect that but I’m so glad I got it”, then I’ll be there with bells on. I love adding personality and character to brands and their content, and finding effective ways to do things a little differently. That’s something I get to do a lot of here at TimeZoneOne, which means I don’t usually awaken with a feeling of crushing despair.

Every day there’s a new audience to reach in any corner of the globe. When reaching them, we’re encouraged to really put ourselves in their shoes: what they need, what they want, what they like, what’s going on for them. With that kind of approach, you really feel like what you do helps both our clients and the everyday folks out there reading our stuff. It’s fulfilling, and I feel right at home.

A lot of what I do outside work also sits in the communications realm. I involve myself in a lot of theatre—acting, writing, directing, and watching. A highlight was breaking my hand mid-performance as Hamlet in front of an audience of 300. I’d say it was method acting, but Hamlet never actually suffers that kind of injury. It certainly added to the angst.

I also work occasionally as a role play participant in communications coaching workshops, helping teach doctors and other professionals better interpersonal skills. And on weekends, I sometimes dress up as Batman or other superheroes to entertain at children’s parties (it’s important to note that I’m invited to do so).

That’s usually the bit that people find most interesting, so I can probably stop here. Now, tell me about you.
