Hi! I’m Alex, Social Media Strategist and all around creative for Zippy Shell USA. Before landing at ZSUSA in June 2013, I was fundraising and managing online communications for Northern Virginia’s largest homeless shelter, Carpenter’s Shelter.
When I’m not dreaming up new campaigns for Zippy Shell, I serve as President of the Board for Social Media Club DC. We plan monthly educational and networking events for communications and tech professionals in the DC area, covering a wide variety of hot topics in social. I’m very much a digital native, you will never see me without my iPhone, or anywhere 3G/Wifi doesn’t reach.
Aside for writing for ZippyLife, I have a personal blog entitled, Animated Ambition, a leadership and entrepreneurial blog geared toward Millennials in the workplace. Writing has always been a passion of mine and I can’t wait to share it with a new audience!
What am I going to be writing about, you ask? Just a few of my favorite things: Cooking, DIY crafts, to-do lists, and personal motivation. I’m sure there will be a bunch of other topics thrown in there as well, but these are my specialties. If you ever have a topic you’d like me to cover, or any of the ZippyLife writers, feel free to reach out via email. I’m writing but I’m also managing the blog! (Read: I’ll make it happen)
I hope you enjoy reading ZippyLife!
