Swipe the vote
In March of 2016, I led an initiative to drive voter registration within the Tinder app in partnership with Rock The Vote. From idea, to product management of the UX and UI, to the marketing roll-out across the U.S., I was detail oriented about the project and Tinder became one of Rock The Vote's leading voter registration partners of 2016. This success led to being invited to host the pre-party to the White House Correspondence Dinner and launching the program in the U.K. for Brexit and France for the French Presidential Election. The program's success was featured by Buzzfeed, Business Insider, The Hill, The New York Daily News, and more. See our event here.
Spotify product integration
In this unique partnership with Spotify, we brought the music experience of Spotify to our users. We focused our marketing campaign around the unique capability of users being able to choose their profile "Anthem" (with or without their Spotify account connected). We simply reminded users that their Anthem would be the way they stood out among the other profiles on Tinder. Our extensive marketing roll-out captured the creativity that we were now offering to our users. The product's launch was featured by TechCrunch, The Verge, Fortune, Forbes, and more.
Tinder social product launch
Tinder Social was Tinder's largest product launch to-date. I led the campaign's global marketing strategy and creative. We ran a multi-faceted campaign that involved multiple creative to specific cohorts that encouraged users to use Tinder Social to get out in the real world. In the creative, we captured the epic moments that happened when groups of friends got together. From there, we showed viewers #HowWeGotHere with a "Hangover" style recap of the moments leading up to the epic night. The product's launch was featured by Forbes, TechCrunch, CNET, and many more.
TindeR's podcast "DTR"
In Tinder's first branded content creation, we partnered with podcast-experts Gimlet Creative for both creative and distribution. I led the partnership's creative, distribution, and marketing efforts. DTR reached #4 in the Apple Podcasts Top Charts and performed incredibly well. The show captured the struggles of being single in the digital age and helped millennials navigate through the confusing times of relationships in the digital age. The content's launch was featured by Wall Street Journal, The Guardian, Bustle, Elite Daily, and more.
Past project videos
Below are the featured videos from the above and other projects that I have led:
Are you a thermostat or a thermometer?
One of the great leadership lessons I was taught growing up through youth sports that I carried with me through high school, college and now the workforce is this: There are two types of leaders, Thermometers and Thermostats.
How Podcasts Helped Me Learn On-The-Go
When I entered the start-up work force, I was always told you should read this book or that book (fill in the blank with books that every startup-er reads). It wasn’t until I actually started getting work on my plate that I asked myself the question, “How the heck do these people have time to read all these books?”.
