I’m Paul, a Brand Strategist at Snap Inc.
Talking with Pictures
After working in real estate for the past four years, I realized showing why I did something led to more opportunities than actually saying what I did. Understanding the power of why led me to pursue a career in brand marketing which led me to pursue a masters degree in Creative Brand Management from VCU Brandcenter.
While in graduate school, I worked in interdisciplinary teams to pitch over 50 projects for brands such as Snap Inc., L’Oreal, Casper, Honey, Hilton, and Adobe. There, I got to work on an independent research project for Snap Inc. on their AR Creator Community. which turned into a job after I graduated.
Currently I’m a Brand Strategist at Snap Inc. telling stories about why people should talk with pictures through Snap’s AR.
