Hello! I'm Deepa.
I'm a copywriter and producer
based in Amsterdam.
I’ve been writing professionally for 12 years, producing for eight, and freelancing for six.
How I started out
I became a published writer at the age of 17. Soon after, I became a monthly contributor to Seventeen, the world's biggest teen publication with nine international editions.
By age 22, I was planning, commissioning, and editing content for an international trade magazine, managing writers and sub-editors across Asia and the United States.
Then I switched to television. As a copy specialist in creative services for TV, I wrote hundreds of scripts for daily promos and big series premieres. In my downtime, I wrote about food, beauty, fashion, and travel for newspapers and magazines.
I left Manila for Singapore, where I became a writer and producer at BDA Creative, an agency specialized in branding and promotions for TV and communications for global brands. I picked up production on the job and became responsible for bringing my ideas to life.
Today I live in Amsterdam, but write and produce for clients all over the globe.
Who I’ve worked with
I’ve worked with clients such as NBCUniversal, HBO, Procter & Gamble, Heineken, the Disney Channel, Canal+, BBC, MTV, ESPN, and GlaxoSmithKline.
I’ve written and produced content for brands like Hugo Boss, Gucci, Dolce & Gabbana, TRESemme, and Johnnie Walker.
As a native English speaker, I proofread and edit content for non-native speakers. I’ve proofread KLM’s inflight magazine, Holland Herald, and edited content for Aflatoun, a global nonprofit that teaches financial literacy to children.
I also work with local entrepreneurs and microbusinesses: photographers, designers, filmmakers, restaurants, and social enterprises.
What all my clients have in common is that they are all whip-smart, have great ideas, and seek the extra edge only well-chosen words can give.
That’s why they hire me.
Why work with me
I get the brief and I get the job done, on time and on point. Every time. Clients find me versatile, creative, prompt, and precise.
I relish the challenge of finding the right words. Working with creative people with killer ideas feeds my thirst for the new and challenging, the surprising and delightful.
When I’m not working, I’m chasing new dots to connect. Exploring my city. Seeking creativity in the wild. Instagramming. Rediscovering the world through the eyes of my Mini-Me.
In short, staying sharp. Mostly for me, but also for you.
What we can do together
I enjoy working on branding and identity projects for lifestyle brands. Today, practically anything can be a lifestyle brand.
If you have a compelling vision of your customer and how you fit into their lifestyle, you’ve got me. If you don't, let's work on it together.
I love food and drink, urban living, art and culture, and travel. I love coming up with names. If your project requires me to tear apart dictionaries in multiple languages and scroll through Scrabble word lists, I’m yours for life.
I take payments via bank transfer and PayPal. I also accept plane tickets, my weight in chocolate, and 100% super fine merino wool.
If you have a great idea, I want to work with you. So get in touch.
I have the words you’re looking for.
A great team player who always gets the brief and delivers beyond expectation. She picked up production very quickly, becoming a meticulous and diligent producer. She always has the most exciting and fun ideas, which makes her a joy to work with.
