Video Series "Ingress Obsessed"(Link)

– Present

Research, community outreach, and promotion of a weekly video series airing on a YouTube channel with 60,000 subscribers. The five videos of season 1 averaged over 33,000 views for each episode (as of August 2014).

Ingress Beta Tester / Google+ Community Moderator

– Present

Based on my interest in mobile technology and location-based marketing and gaming, I'm a beta tester of a game from the Niantic Labs at Google. The Android app, Ingress, is not only an enjoyable game with a mysterious storyline, but it is also an opportunity to discover how to connect mobile + social + marketing in a way that people enjoy.

I host a weekly Google+ Video Hangout to discuss Ingress online with other users. Recently, I've had an increase in attendees and interest, as well as recognition and attendance from representatives from Niantic Labs @ Google.

I'm also enhancing my skills in social media marketing by organizing online groups and events for other users. I serve as a community manager for regional, national and global Communities on Google+. I'm testing how I can connect and build trust online while also providing interesting and relevant content to this audience. I've coordinated in-person events for both playing the game and socializing/networking. I use other Google products (Drive, Docs, Hangouts, Maps, etc.) to collaborate with other members and moderators.
