WHAT DO YOU DO?
WHAT STEPS DID YOU TAKE TO GET TO WHERE YOU ARE NOW?
A lot of high-level company clients, as well as achieved a degree in marketing with a lot of certifications and have worked under great marketing firms that exposed me to some high-level output work.
HOW DO YOU STAND OUT IN YOUR FIELD?
My work is personalized to give a unique experience every time a consumer visits the product. I specifically tailor products to what the consumer wants but adjust the work to what the consumer needs as well. You aren't just paying me to deliver a product, but also to give you what you don't know you need.
WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON RIGHT NOW?
I work full time at a toy manufacturer as a marketing manager handling PPC campaigns as well as freelance work primarily around website creation and SEO optimization.
WHAT'S YOUR STYLE/PERSPECTIVE/TASTE? DO YOU HAVE A PROJECT THAT REPRESENTS THIS?
I revolve my work around your style. My perspective is to handle it with a unique experience. The end product determines the goal and image of the company. The taste is to be as visually delicious as possible, whether by maximizing each square inch per website or by having a minimalist approach.
Check out a website for an IT firm I created, 2econd Wind Technology.
WE ARE ALL SLASHIES WITH MULTIPLE SKILLS, WHICH ONE DO YOU WISH YOU COULD DO MORE OFTEN?
I love seeing the reaction of my clients when I finish designing their trendy, client facing-websites. Squarespace & website creation has been a huge passion and outlet of mine to connect clients with their consumers through a gorgeous website fit for any entrepreneur.
WHAT IS FRUSTRATING YOU RIGHT NOW?
Editing my 5, very long, Youtube videos. So much editing, so little time.
IF YOU COULD HIRE SOMEONE FOR $20/HR, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE THEM DO TO MAKE YOUR DAY EASIER?
Someone to handle the specifics of documentation and data acquisition. Besides that, edit and optimize my Youtube videos, since it's safe to say that it is fun, but very time-consuming.
LET'S BRING OUT THE TIME MACHINE. WHAT DO YOU WISH YOU COULD HAVE TOLD YOURSELF, WHEN, AND WHY?
To the younger me straight out of college: cubicles are not for you. Stay remote and freelance, build relationships, become creative and explore opportunities to make a person's product amazing.
IF YOU COULD TALK TO AN EXPERT TO GAIN MORE INSIGHT ON SOMETHING, WHAT WOULD IT BE ABOUT?
I would ask Leo Burnett on how marketing has changed and what he misses the most about the 1900's.
WHAT KIND OF OPPORTUNITIES/PROJECTS ARE YOU LOOKING FOR?
1. Website creation & SEO Optimization;
2. Tableau and data visualization work for analytics & social media.
DESCRIBE YOUR IDEAL JOB/CLIENT/COLLABORATION.
My ideal client is one where I can really embody the message for a project to give a lasting experience. Being able to work repeatedly for the client to deliver a string of tasks within a project that has a broader overall goal or message.
WHAT IS YOUR HOURLY RATE, RETAINER, OR SALARY RANGE?
My fees vary from client to client based on the scope of the ask. I usually reach this answer via discussion and a brief I have potential clients fill out.
WHO IS A CREATIVE THAT HAS HELPED YOU ELEVATE YOUR WORK?
My brother, Michael Mikho! He is a Visual Designer at Groupon and has a lot of crazy beautiful experience.
