I write, I edit, manage social media, and throw events. I've got mad skills, and am always looking for all kinds of opportunities. Check out the contacts tab at the top there to send me messages for jobs, freelance gigs, art commissions, or, you know, the occasional love letter.
I also helped write and promote BYGays to the queer and straight communities. Head on over the the Editorial section at the top for a curated selection of my articles.
We also threw sporsored events like Pool Parties, Fundraisers, and The Official Capital Pride Party. As a team we obtained sponsors including Capitol Pride, Smirnoff, and Vitamin Water. We also organize venues and creatively collaborate with promoters, DJ's, artists, and photographers.
I currently work for One Medical Group as a Brand Ambassador and community manager assistant. At our influencer events I engage event goers to let them know about One Medical's mission. Over the past eight months I've been to approximately ten events in New York and in San Francisco where I turn attendees into new patients. In a few instances I converted skeptical attendees to patients on the spot using our mobile app. I gradually increased my involvement and became the point person and preferred ambassador for events. To be honest, I LOVE going to these events to meet people, chat about the benefits of the company and act as its biggest cheerleader.
Simultaneously, I worked on developing the company's brand via two social media outlets. I developed our Pinterest from a skeleton into a full fledged outlet for client retention and acquisition. I copywrote Pins and actively sought out influential pinners to develop digital relationships. My third area of brand development invovled research on analytics for Pinterest.
I also developed a weekly Tweet called #HealthyHabit to promote the brand via a different outlet.
Next, I helped found Vestibule DC, a pop up gallery with accompanying opening event. I reached out to collaborate with PBR for celebration beers for over 600 people and worked with artists to curate a very well attended opening. I also reached out to newspapers and blogs for coverage including Brightest Young Things and Project Pink Line. Here are a few photos from the event.
Finally, while working at the Washington City Paper, I contributed a couple of articles: an art review, and a description of my trials with a DC landlord. As a receptionist, then as a sales assistant, I switched hats frequently. I managed interns, fielded customer service calls, managed distribution and circulation, and organized weekly mailings.
Now, I know this is all very exciting. I'll give you a minute to catch your breath. ............................. Ok, now that we're both calm don't forget to contact me. I'm open to short term realtionships, long term relationships, or even one night events.
You'll find me at kelianaya (at) gmail.com, @kelianaya, or I have a contact tab up on the right side there, which will give you everything you've ever wanted.
