Oh, hello there. Fancy seeing you here.
Allow me to introduce myself.
I'm Justin Barisich. I write things.
Silly, little things — like bits of lyrics to love songs that I "sing" to my wife. (And sometimes our dog).
Big, important things — like video scripts for CEOs to record and send out to tens of thousands of employees.
Direct, strategic things — like concepts and ads for year-long campaigns that actually solve clients' business problems.
Beautiful, poetic things — like short stories and speeches and spoken word pieces, sometimes even performing them on stages across the country.
And I've written these things, for over a dozen
years now, all to help others create
Good Stories, Well Told.
