Paolo Mottola

Visual Storyteller | Northwest Homegrown 

I have a passion for creating and telling stories. 

I have a master’s degree in communications and digital media (MCDM) from the University of Washington and completed my undergraduate studies in journalism and public relations at Western Washington University. I still have the student loans to prove it.

I have the privilege of working at REI as Content Marketing Manager, accountable for all things related to editorial brand content. Previously, I was a Digital Engagement Program Manager for the co-op, managing social network relationships, social advertising and much, much, more.

I proudly live in Tacoma, WA, with my wife, daughter and border collie. In my spare time, I enjoy directing poorly-produced home videos, playing on mountains and contributing to or combating love handles.
