Hi, I'm Micah Whitehead, Social Architect, Co-Creative & Marketing Dude at Verge Pipe Media and Golf Joust
As a recent graduate of Auburn University, my career has launched at high velocity as the Social Architect and Co-Director of Creative Services of Verge Pipe Media and Golf Joust. In addition to rocking client briefs as the “Pitch Dude," I help with the launch and marketing strategy for Golf Joust.
Auburn is home, but I began my professional journey spending some time in Silicon Valley working in the digital media industry, I fell in love with the start-up culture, which means my heart beats to the rhythm of forward-thinking and free-wheeling.
I dream about connecting organizations to individuals through creative communication and community building in the digital world. My weapons of choice are: inbound marketing, content marketing, creative business writing, SMO, SEO, digital media production, kick-ass design, analytics, and, most importantly, a potent mix of passion + creativity + imagination.
