my career (in a nutshell)
In 2007, I was hired as the first (and only) HR Manager at youth marketing agency MRY (formerly Mr. Youth) – one of Inc. 500’s “fastest growing private companies in America” (2007) and Mashable’s “social media agency of the year” (2009).
social media career
From 2009-2014, I worked as a freelance Social Media Strategist, and here are some highlights:
From 2014-2017, I worked full-time at Billboard, the world’s largest music brand (by digital traffic and social reach) and ranked “No. 1 U.S. Brand” and “No. 1 U.S. Publisher” on Twitter (2015).
I was responsible for creating content across social media platforms and audience development.
I also pitched content ideas to the newsroom based on trends, covered live events (from daily artist visits to the Grammy Awards), produced monthly reports, contributed stories, and took on a dual-role at Spin.com after Billboard acquired SpinMedia.
