He is not only a comedic genius but also understands the consistency in delivering content WINS in Snapchat Social Media Marketing.
SCSMM: How did you first discover Snapchat?
I first discovered Snapchat when about 4 years ago, and would use it to send silly things to my close friends to make them laugh, then after moving to Utah to act/sing/dance/write with some famous YouTubers, I learned the potential of the app. We were making a video that was branded by the toy company Sphero, and I made the marketing team laugh, so they decided to send me to NY Comic Con October 2015 to take over their Snapchat. I was then introduced to the Ghostcodes app, where I proceeded to grow rapidly!
SCSMM: What do you like to Snap about?
I like to snap about all things silly. Whether it’s an unusual way to wake up, a grocery store fun run, or character adventures, you literally never know what to expect with my snaps! I understand that people like to develop a story, and sometimes I will create a story, but more often I love having each snap be a separate and unrelated joke. That way people remain engaged because they have no idea what silliness is coming next!
SCSMM: Why should everyone follow you on Snapchat and watch your stories every day?
Everyone should follow me on Snapchat and watch my stories every day because I have a simple goal. My goal is to help people smile or laugh every day with every snap when they otherwise wouldn’t feel the need to be happy. 🙂
SCSMM: What would you recommend someone do who is just starting out on Snapchat?
What I would recommend to someone just getting started on snap chat would be the same advice I would offer to anyone deciding to take the plunge in following any passion:
- Find a thing you like
- Learn more about that thing than anyone
- Be consistent about your thing, even if you get discouraged
- Reach out to people who also like your thing
- Work hard, stay humble, and repeat steps 2-4 🙂
SCSMM: What else do you do? What is your business?
Although snapping has become a big part of my life, my story has taken many roads. I am from Lake Tahoe, California and I used to be a professional competitive half-pipe skier until I blew my knee at the Olympic Qualifiers in New Zealand in 2013. I then got surgery and finished school May 2015 getting a degree in mechanical engineering. I realized though that all I wanted in life was to help people smile, so I got to work. Standup comedy, acting classes, dancing lessons, singing lessons, everything I could possibly learn to make that dream happen. Then I randomly met a famous Youtube filmmaker from Utah who thought I was silly. I turned down a job offer making warheads for the weapons division of the aeronautical component of the Navy, moved my whole life to a place where I barely knew anyone, and I got to work. In one year out in Utah, I have done professional voiceover work, modeling, acted in youtube videos that have surpassed a total of 30 million views, and am currently a casting option for a feature film for Paramount Pictures.
