CHC Welcomes Copywriter: Nick Brothers
CHC is pleased to welcome Nick Brothers to our team as a Copywriter. As the Center's very first copywriter, Nick will develop written concepts for our opioid overdose prevention projects via print, digital, and video media. His focus will be on materials promoting prescribers’ use of the Texas Prescription Monitoring Program and a new statewide opioid overdose awareness campaign.
An Arkansas native, Nick's passion for writing propelled him into an early career as a journalist. He earned his undergraduate English/Journalism degree from the University of Arkansas-Fayetteville in 2014, working as the Editor-In-Chief for the student newspaper his senior year. Following graduation, he became Editor of The Free Weekly alternative newspaper in Fayetteville, where he covered the arts and culture scene and wrote about the tastemakers of Northwest Arkansas. Three years later he moved to Austin, taking on the role of Managing Editor of Hill Country News in Cedar Park, TX, chronicling the news and events of Austin's rapidly growing suburban city. Soon after, he transferred his expertise in content strategy to SelfMade, a tech marketing startup agency servicing eCommerce entrepreneurs. While there, Nick wrote copy for hundreds of diverse microbrands through social media, digital advertising, and email marketing campaigns.
A self-proclaimed "music nerd", Nick is happy to call Austin his home. With such a robust live music, arts and food scene, he enjoys attending concerts and sampling Texas barbecue. When he isn't thinking up clever taglines or getting a breakfast taco, he enjoys songwriting and performing as a guitarist and vocalist.
