Experience

Summary

An early member of Gary Vaynerchuk's fast-rising digital media agency, I'm an expert in digital storytelling. During my 8-year career, I've worked with countless industry thought leaders, CEOs, and globally recognized brands.

Work history

Founder
The Ascent is a community of documenters & top-100 publication on Medium with over 40,000 members. I created The Ascent as a personal blog, then grew it into what it is today: a fast-rising online publication drawing in over 200,000 views per month.
Senior Copywriter
VaynerMedia is a full-service digital agency built for the now. I wore many hats during my time there, working with industry thought leaders and globally recognized brands.
Staff Writer
MakeUseOf's mission is to help users deconstruct the world of technology and gadgets. During my tenure as a part-time staff writer, I wrote 120+ articles on a variety of tech and social media-related topics, reaching an audience of up to 20 million.

Portfolio

GE's "EmojiScience" Campaign

I spearheaded a hugely successful Snapchat campaign from a creative and copy perspective at NYU's science lab in collaboration with Bill Nye. Super proud of everything in that sentence.

RITZ Crackers' "Life's Rich Rivalries" Campaign

I devised, wrote, and helped cast and direct a socially-driven commercial for RITZ Crackers that aired in parts of the US and Mexico and was viewed 5.6 million times online.

GE's "Drone Week" Campaign

I visited 9 airports in 8 days to lead creative execution on GE's #DroneWeek campaign. We live-streamed the inside of 5 GE facilities—where they build jet engines, locomotives, gas and wind turbines—to Periscope, all from a flying drone.

Stride Gum's "Heaven Sent" Campaign

I led the voice development of Stride Gum's brand revival on social media, which coincided with professional skydiver Luke Aikins's "Heaven Sent" jump—25,000 feet without a parachute. The stunt garnered over 1.5 billion impressions worldwide.

Ideal team

I'm used to working with teams of all sizes, whether one-on-one, a large group, or by myself. I prefer a hands-off management style and clients who are looking to make a splash in their respective industries.
