Gamebrain

MOBILE GAME DEVELOPMENT PLATFORM

Marketing and Creative Manager  /  San Francisco, CA  /  2013 - 2014

I led the strategic marketing effort for the Gamebrain platform. I also took a lead role in the UI/UX development reporting directly to the CEO. I updated the look and feel of the Gamebrain branding and then re-designed the Gamebrain.com landing pages and the content management pages as well as creating a multitude of supporting materials and digital assets. I established a social media strategy and increased social engagement by 530%. I was responsible for the tone and voice of the company writing all customer-facing communication from website copy to marketing emails and I lead the front-end theme development in HTML and CSS/Less in a Git version-controlled agile environment on an AngularJs, Bootstrap, and Concrete 5 CMS Framework.

Creative Director  /  Salt Lake City, UT  /  2006 - 2013

I created the branding packages for multiple restaurants and mixed-use real estate development projects. I led the design team as well as self-produced multiple in-house brand websites with supporting photography and other relevant content along with supporting print and digital marketing assets. I also created highly detailed three-dimentional digital architectural models from which I generated renderings, construction working drawings, and specifications. Then negotiated the city and county bureaucracies to gain permits and approvals for time-critical projects. I was the primary owner liaison of construction oversight on multiple multi-million dollar projects.
