Hey there, I'm Morgan Von Gunten

Building a no-code e-commerce business to help people plot stories.

 

Hey, I'm Morgan. I use words, video, and design to tell stories that are good, beautiful, and true. I'm turning a side project into a business to support my writing.

  • I've always been making something (right now, I'm building a business with no-code tools)
  • I'm learning marketing by doing
  • I try to write daily
  • I landed an entry-level role at Crash without experience by being excited about the mission, staying fast on emails, and showing my work
  • Slightly obsessed with Norway and taking action on ideas

I'd love to meet you—drop a note in the comments below!

Experience

Editor and Content Manager at Crash
1 year
I started as a content creator and community manager apprentice. Now, I'm honored to be the editor and content manager at Crash. I run our social media, manage our editorial calendar and make sure content goes out every day on the blog, create Webflow landing pages, and more.
Media and Communications Intern at Christ Community Chapel
3 months
As part of the media team, I directed multiple livestream shows; ran broadcast cameras during weekend services and events–including an RZIM conference and Lecrae concert–produced sports highlight videos; edited and manned lyric slides; and switched livestream video. During the week, I'd write and edit copy for the communications team–which went out on social media, their website, and bulletins–and create targeted emails for upcoming events.
Team Member at Chick-fil-A
3 months
I spent a summer working full-time at my local Chick-fil-A. I quickly became one of the fastest employees on the drive-through window and was known for happily organizing equipment and condiments, building relationships with guests, and keeping a smile on my face even when things got tough. I was always willing to do any task assigned to me, and before I left, my manager told me I'd always have a job there if I needed it–she wouldn't hesitate to hire me again.
