As a startup marketer for four and a half years, I’ve become a marketing MacGyver for a company that has seen all the ups and downs - firefighting PR crises, writing up content, launching products, shipping emails, riding the social media waves, and even donning a mascot costume a few times.
I believe in blue-collar practicality, (extreme) ownership, (actual) integrity, and a sense of playfulness in marketing as in life. I eat startup chaos for breakfast and turn it into wisdom (if I’m lucky) which I try to write about every day at jameswalpole.com.
For a few years, I've managed and curated content for the LinkedIn page for my employer BitPay, the world's leading processor of blockchain payments.
I've created content, answered questions, and communicated with customers on my company's Twitter page for several years.
Beautiful photos are powerful assets for marketers. I have taken product shots, event photos, and headshots for my work and for fun.
An example of a press release I drafted for BitPay while managing corporate PR and communications between 2015 and early 2018.
Since early 2017, I have published over 750 blog posts on my personal site on everything from startup life and philosophy to running and Lord of the Rings.
In 2019, I've started filming video interviews for BitPay with some of the interesting people of the blockchain ecosystem.
I co-hosted 15 episodes of a podcast on the philosophical themes of the epic TV show Game of Thrones.
I co-hosted and helped to produce and source guests for this series of shows on open source and decentralized technologies.
I make basic post-edits and publish this church sermon podcast.
