Sandy Suminski

Advertising Writer and Brand Stylist



I am a thoughtful, generous writer who revels in digging deep and finding the essence of a thing.


My extensive experience includes working for top advertising agencies in consumer, direct, healthcare, pharmaceutical, technical and business-to-business, as well as experience working directly with entrepreneurs, artists and smaller businesses.

I work in moving, still, interactive and purely audible media. I concept, research, write, edit, and direct. I collaborate with individuals and companies to help them discover their brand story, and how best to express it.
