Where I've worked

Marketing Coordinator (January 2014 - March 2015, closed)

Startups can be many things. To me, has been a chance to go above and beyond, a testbed to try new things, an opportunity to mold company culture, a calling to affect change at every level, and a school to learn [experience] the ups, downs, and sideways of living & working in a  startup. Along the way I:

  • Managed internal and external corporate communication & branding, including the website, presentations, marketing decks, and reports
  • Focused on investment and pitch messaging, which resulted in winning Rise of the Rest w/ Steve Case and an invitation to the Venture Atlanta competition
  • Contributed to the overall agency cycle, from developing client campaign concepts, to proposals, wireframes, reporting, and client communication
  • Improved operational efficiency through use of project management tools, reporting processes, and proposal creation
  • And like all healthy startups, anything and everything else that needs to be tackled was honored to be selected as the winner of Rise of the Rest, a startup pitch competition founded by Steve Case and Revolution to accelerate the "Rise of the Rest" in American entrepreneurship. Our mission is to solve the pain that entertainment and media companies face in today's digitally fractured world. To solve this, we're revolutionizing digital sponsorship by announcing the Affinity Exchange to connect brands with highly valuable content and digital sponsorship opportunities.
