Tell us a little about what you do at JAKKMedia!
I’m primarily the video editor for Mattress Clarity, so I spend my days in Premiere Pro obsessing over tiny details in order to edit together footage for the reviews that you see on the youtube channel. Sometimes I help film too!
What’s a favorite project so far?
I loved working on “Best Weighted Blankets” because I’ve been looking for a weighted blanket and learned a lot as I was editing it!
What is something you think will change about digital content in the next five years?
Digital content will become more accessible for both viewers and creators, and as a result, there will be an even greater shift towards using video as a marketing tool.
Are there any skills you want to learn or develop more at JAKK?
I would love to dive deeper into SEO. In a sea of digital content it’s important to know how to get your content seen.
All of JAKK’s sites feature collaborative teams. What’s something impactful you’ve learned from another person at JAKK Media?
I’ve learned a lot about sound from Josh! Being a more visual person, I’ve always had difficulty understanding something that I couldn’t see. He’s helped me immensely in understanding how to master audio.
