I'm Jennifer, a marketing consultant, entrepreneur and writer based out of Sugarhouse, Utah. With fourteen years of experience in marketing, I believe I have the broad base of experience that is becoming more and more necessary in the dynamic world of media. Right now, there is a need for social media marketing that incorporates video, audio, images, SEO, great copy, appropriate placement and on and on. If you have a great product or service but don't tell a story, don't tell it clearly or don't incorporate these different components, you will at best minimize the return on your efforts and investment. It's becoming more and more appropriate to also use different, cost effective means to produce the necessary materials and sites like oDesk, combined with real world experience at events like Startup Weekend for cost effective and efficient campaigns. For example, there is a production team doing some very cool things in Ogden and I wanted the chance to work with them in an effort to find a partner to help with my client content. This past weekend, there was an event I love (Startup Weekend) and I invited them to come work on my project. In a weekend, we developed a business idea, a website (still needs a couple things), two videos and more. Here is one of the two videos we produced. The music is also an original composition made for this piece. http://bit.ly/1ehXtqL Why is all of this important? Because I've done all of the individual components and have had the opportunity to work with some of Utah's top advertisers in a variety of capacities. Also,I want to move into more integrated campaigns. I'm heavily into tech and have had much experience with markets from WISP's to software and from VoIP to new technologies/programs. Groove Entertainment Technologies was a client for two years and Wisdom Teeth Only has been on with me for over four years now. I've worked with six of their locations across three different states. I can chart out social media, develop creative and tracking, automate processes and grow a consumer or client base. I have some of my own systems and resources but I learn quickly should there be new programs necessary. I'm also fast, efficient and take much less time than clients typically anticipate. Please feel free to request additional information. Thank you for your time. Regards, Jennifer

Look I am currently a college student pursuing an advertising degree who is trying to make a little money on the side to pay for college while becoming a more established writer/designer. I have a unique understanding of the human mind and how life works a long with a very creative style of thinking that allows me to stand out from the rest of the crowd in a positive way. Basically I am an artist, an artist with a vision to start a chain reaction and to change the world through his voice. I am determined to create the best product possible and have fun doing it. It is what I am about. I love being creative and thinking outside the box that is my passion, and when you have someone who is passionate about what they are doing that is when the best product is created just ask apple. I know I don't have "the experience," desired for most but sometimes in life you have to take a gamble and I guarantee that if you choose me that I will turn that gamble into an investment.

Rob Margolies, director of 'She Wants Me', with Hilary Duff and Charlie Sheen, is shooting my short comedy script "Conversion of the Atheist" as his next project. Last summer, Brendan Walsh, an assistant director who worked on an episode of '30 Rock' and on the Hollywood film 'The Wrestler', shot my short comedy script 'Heartbreak Pills'. The film played at the Friars Club Comedy and Long Island Film Festivals in New York in 2013. I recently finished writing 13 animated episodes for the second season of the children's hit show 'Mia and Me'. In the spring of 2011 I optioned my vampire comedy feature 'Bloodied' to One-Eyed-Dog Films in England. It was set for a budget of just over a million. I have written with Colin Mochrie, who commented that a script I wrote for his television show made him howl. For three years I was nominated for a Gemini in the category of Best Writing in a Comedy or Variety Program or Series.
