Mitchell Hall

Content marketing and communications leader in Cambridge, Massachusetts

I craft marketing and communications messages and messaging strategies, mainly for companies that work in technology or business/finance.

Growing up I captained my debate teams, wrote poetry and short stories, played piano, DJ'ed and promoted parties, managed record stores, was a radio newsreader and show host, and cruelly had a promising modeling career cut short due to a chronic habit of eating and drinking.

Huge music nerd.

I was also a surf lifesaver and played many sports competitively, including rugby, tennis, and soccer; raced motocross professionally, and was into snowboarding, hunting, karate, anything on or in the water, and most activities that could accelerate my poor parents' aging process.

To further my journalism career I immigrated from New Zealand to New York City in 2009 during the depths of the great financial crisis. I lacked family, contacts, a job, and a work visa in my new country. Some might say this was not the smartest move. Others would argue for evidence of cojones the size of grapefruit. It is not for me to say.

I can say I have a BA in philosophy and political science with a minor in English literature. I've written for many publications as a freelancer, reporter, and columnist, and I have a decade of experience as managing editor at various online technology and business publications.

I moved from journalism into marketing communications in 2014, and into Boston in 2015. I very much enjoy wielding words to create positive impact. According to my beautiful, much smarter wife, these days I mainly spend too much money on food and drink.
