Who is this guy?
Biologist in another life. Writer at heart. Marketer and ad guy by trade. After a rather unorthodox beginning as a post-grad that included handing out MetroPCS flyers to folks in laundromats, I now have the honor of leading a team of 7 as we reinvent the social media ecosystem supporting a retailer with over 60 locations across 9 states.
At 26, I have 6 years’ worth of experience in strategy, paid media, content development, digital executions and experiential marketing. My client portfolio is spread across non-profit, energy, higher ed, law, retail, entertainment, CPG and QSR verticals with notable clients being Russell Athletic, Square Enix, HERSHEY’S TAKE5, Wingstop, IHOP, FoodSaver, Coleman, HBO, Bartles & Jaymes, NCAA DII, Sporting KC, the George Kaiser Family Foundation and Rally House. My contributions have led to 3 “Best Of Show” designations, 29 golds and 8 silvers in local, regional and national AAA competitions as well as 2 Shortys and a Clio Sports Silver. My work has been featured in Adweek, the Wall Street Journal, Buzzfeed, Bustle, Outside, IGN, Game Informer, HIGHSNOBIETY and more.
Activations have included partnerships with the likes of Sesame Street, Amazon Music, Uber, Hulu, Xbox, Coca-Cola, Cinemark Theatres, the Little League World Series, Minor League Baseball, the National Park Foundation, Adult Swim... even actor/comedian Nick Kroll.
I like to lend my content-driven skillset to volunteer in a variety of capacities. I led Twitter content initiatives for a church with 27 locations across the country; covered KC’s Middle of the Map Fest across 4 of the festival’s channels by capturing content for 50 bands in 12+ venues; helped increase exposure for the resurrection of KC Startup Weekend to elevate event awareness & drive ticket sales and developed a first-of-its kind content strategy and voice for the largest Ugly Christmas Sweater Party in the Midwest.
