Tess has been writing long and short form DRTV since before the industry was even known as DRTV. She’s written winning campaigns in nearly every category: Beauty (IT Cosmetics, Bare Minerals), Health & Fitness (Beachbody, Copper Fit, United Healthcare Medicare), Housewares (Power Pressure Cooker XL, FoodSaver, Pella Windows), Finance (Transamerica, E*Trade, MasterCard), Travel (Princess Cruises, Viking River Cruises), Entertainment (Shirley Temple, Time Life Music), Technology (LifeLock, Carbonite) and Automotive (Ford, Chrysler, Jeep, Dodge). She’s equally adept writing for massive brands (Black & Decker, 3M, Johnsonville Sausage, Disney, 20th Century Fox) as she is for emerging startups (Reaction Commerce).
She’s a gadget geek, a fitness fanatic, a foodie, an armchair sommelier, and a binge-watching content consumer who likes to do her own home renovations. And while she once shaved her head (why not?) and walked 525 miles across Spain, she much prefers to stay home with her sweet white Lab Grace.
