Editorial Web Producer for ‘Anderson Live‘
New York City, NY
2012 – 2013
I love Anderson Cooper. Anderson had a two-season daytime talk show that was shot near his 360 office in NYC.
I managed online marketing campaigns, games, contests and other exciting and engaging content for viewers, and as a result, increased the social media following on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and Tumblr by 35%.
The most memorable moment with Anderson was when I recorded exclusive, behind-the-scenes videos for the site, asking him to answer Twitter questions from his fans.
He was always so professional and kind to everyone.
Fun fact: His uniform was a pair of dark jeans, a plain shirt, and hoodie. He carried a backpack and regularly rode his bike to the office.
