Staff Spotlight: Drew, Social Media & PR Coordinator

Earlier this summer we were delighted to add a new member to our team, our Social Media & PR Coordinator Drew. He comes to us with a background in social/digital media, public relations, and market research and outreach, gleaned during his time working with major public relations firms like Tyler Barnett and De Waal & Associates and assisting with marketing for Sensu K.K., a start-up tech company based in Tokyo. While an undergraduate at San Francisco State University, Drew studied Linguistics, journeying to the University of Ghana to learn in and explore the West African nation. He is currently working toward a Digital Marketing Certification from UC Irvine. Here’s Drew, in his own words.
