Alec McNayr

I create stories, social media, videos, scripts, blogs, and print media (“books,” I’ve heard them called).

I’m currently working as the creative director and co-founding partner of McBeard Media, a social media agency that works with the likes of Nokia, 20th Century Fox, Sony, Disney, and Amazon.com to engage and embrace their online fans.

My business partner Alan and I created the humor blog Historical Tweets, and its spin-off book Historical Tweets: The Completely Unabridged and Ridiculously Brief History of the World, published by Villard/Random House. (There’s also a 2012 calendar on the way!)

Previously, I worked with all-star writer/producer Bob Gustafson to run Space Shank Media, a production company that created online and television entertainment, including the award-winning Flipper Nation, a pilot concept for ABC, and the Battlestar Galactica parody web series My Roommate the Cylon.

I spent seven years at Pepperdine University, developing online marketing strategy and producing videos. Prior to that, I served as a web content producer for Jupiter Media Metrix.
