Seattle, Washington, United States
Hello! My name is Alex, and I’m an entrepreneur, marketer, data geek, and coffee connoisseur with an insatiable curiosity for the new and foreign.
I got my first taste of entrepreneurship interning at a startup game developer – a position that ignited a love of startups and launched a four-year job managing grassroots marketing campaigns to bring the studio’s flagship product to the market – both in stores and online in six languages worldwide.
I have since worked on marketing campaigns (Social, Field, Digital, PPC, Search) for student organizations, nonprofits, small businesses, and other start-ups, continuously seeking out opportunities to learn and grow as a marketing professional.
With a passion for backpacking and exploring other cultures, I’m currently designing a new mobile app, Wanderlust, with the intention of facilitating more meaningful, culturally authentic travel experiences by matching travelers with knowledgeable locals and off-the-beaten-path itineraries. Wanderlust won the Seattle University 16th Annual Harriet Stephenson Business Plan Competition and made it to the semi-finals of the Buerk Center Business Plan Competition at the University of Washington.
I graduated from Seattle University in June 2014 with with majors in marketing and economics. In my four years at SU, I launched a collegiate chapter of the American Marketing Association, co-founded the Albers Club Council to organize the university’s first annual “Innovation Week,” and worked with the Innovation & Entrepreneurship Center to identify new opportunities in entrepreneurial education.
I currently manage content marketing for Apptentive, the leading enterprise SaaS platform for mobile customer communications, where I’m blessed to work with some of Seattle’s top talent and fellow ‘appreneurs.’ My job changes by the day, but involves messaging strategy, growth marketing, and the organization of our Appy Hour meetup series.
Thanks for reading, and please contact me if you’d like to chat or grab coffee!
