I have a Masters of Arts in Mass Communications, Advertising; focused on social media, new media and transmedia entertainment from Cal State Fullerton. I currently do Social and New Media and Corporate communications for a popular Southern Californian Pizza Parlor. I also have extensive experience in the hospitality and entertainment industries as a 10 year cast member at Walt Disney Parks and Resorts. Beginning in late 2011 I also took over as Marketing Director for Wyrd Con and Social Media Manager for the International Academy of Web Television. From 2011 through mid 2013 I was also the Social Media Director for TransmediaLA. No, I don’t sleep.
Social media is a passion of mine, with the majority of my research studies and projects going toward learning more about audience behavior in relation to new media as well as how new media entertainment is changing the entertainment game in general. I also am currently working on some small transmedia storytelling projects. In June of 2011, I hosted my first convention panel on Transmedia Storytelling and how it can be applied to the LARP community at Two Wyrd, an interactive storytelling convention held yearly in Costa Mesa, CA. Throughout the last year I have been on a number of social media panels at events such as VidCon, New Media Expo, and Social Media Week – Los Angeles.
I am available for social media consulting and freelance work and am working on a new project called Social Angel which will offer social media solutions to businesses and individuals of all kinds.
