MARKETING EXPERIENCE

PicMonkey.com (2018-2020) - Social Media & Video Manager


Marketing a tool for marketers meant thinking outside the box. As Social Media & Video Manager, I conceptualized, created, and launched video marketing material across all social channels and our user interface.  Throughout my time at PicMonkey I created 70+ original help and tutorial YouTube videos to onboard and retain product users. To convert new userts, I worked with ad agencies to ideate and produce video content for digital advertisements. I also planned, executed, and captured unique marketing events, conferences, and user meetups across the country, to promote brand awareness and acquisition channels. 

"Evan contributed far beyond his role at PicMonkey - he was a fantastic brand ambassador, a thoughtful and inquisitive marketer, and his storytelling skills are second to none." -  Judith McGarry, CMO

"Evan understands the social space and creates incredible (quality!) content. He conceptualizes, plans, creates, and executes his work beautifully. I highly recommend Evan as a content creator, as a team member, and as an overall human being. " -  Fabiola Millican, Senior Social Marketing Manager

Hipcamp.com (2016-present) - Field Scout Photographer

Hipcamp is the AirBnB for camping, and as a Field Scout, I get to showcase all the unique spots it offers. One of the first to stay at a site, my task is to photograph it in all its glory; capturing all the little things that make it unique. Whether it's a tent pitched in a vineyard or a yurt in the woods, I photograph it all to verify the site and inspire new bookings. Content is also used in Hipcamp marketing, and my photos have been printed in publications like Sunset Magazine and more. 

Twenty20 (2016) - Photo Editor and Collection Curator

 

As part of a stock photography app/web start-up, I curated collections of the best content in a catalogue of over 40 million photos to help subscribers find the perfect content for their marketing campaigns. I also populated the database with high-impact imagery to develop the face and overall brand of the company. 

"Evan is an amazing human. He is talented, artistic, funny, and a very hard worker and I would hire him again for any job, big or small." - Jessica Mays, Senior Director of Life Sciences
