Day Job

I spent the waking weekday hours leading content marketing, paid media, SEO and grand openings teams at REI Co-op. My greatest achievements are being named Content Marketer of the Year (it's a team effort, really), receiving an REI Leadership Award, and managing my calendar well-enough to work from home on Fridays.

Here are some work examples.

The campaign won 9 Cannes Lions, including the Titanium Grand Prix. Over the past three years, more than 15 million people and 700 organizations have joined the movement.

Force of Nature

Role: campaign and content strategy

REI proclaimed that the outdoors should be the world's largest level playing field -- a statement focused on gender equality. The Force of Nature campaign included a $500,000 grant for outdoor women's organization, an original study on gender equity in the outdoors, and an integrated branded content relationship with Outside Magazine, including print, digital, film and podcast.

REI's documentary film series is a pillar of its brand marketing.

The films have collectively received more than 50 million views across mobile devices, TVs and theaters.
