Resume

Cover Letter

I am looking to progress in the marketing field in an open and creative atmosphere by using my previous experiences in video production, audio production, and social media marketing. My personal goal is to become a Community Manager for an organization and to become a valuable asset in any work environment and gain knowledge from colleagues and higher ups in all applicable fields, while helping with the development of those that may report to me.

 

In my current role as Production Specialist for Bandai Namco Toys & Collectibles America, I manage our organizations main social media channels of @BandaiCollect on Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube which have a combined total of 150,000 followers and subscribers. In addition, I create all of the video content seen across these channels using my experience as a camera operator, video editor, motion graphic designer, and host to inform our community of new products and upcoming releases.

 

I have experience building communities from the ground up as well as managing already established ones. From 2012 to 2018, I created and managed a podcast brand that had over 4,000 followers on social media and an average of 500 downloads per episode. This brand was entirely conceived on the realization that there were not many “fan-operated” podcasts in the professional hockey community.

 

Please refer to the below resume for previous job experiences and references. I look forward to meeting the hiring team in person or virtually to discuss my experiences in greater detail.
