Describe Your Role at TubeBuddy in 5 Words
Video Production and Community Management!
What drew you to TubeBuddy?
While I was working for a YouTube network, we partnered with TubeBuddy and I got a chance to test out their tools. I saw that TubeBuddy was doing what I had hoped to be doing at the network - helping Online creators. TubeBuddy was not just helping in the traditional sense, but equipping creators with the tools they needed to help themselves. From then on, I knew I wanted to try TubeBuddy and get more involved.
What projects are you currently working on?
My current focus is our new series, ‘Free Feature Fridays’. Every Friday, we showcase one of our free features and show how to use the tool and its benefits to the user. We want to be sure that every user, whether they have a free license or a Legend license, understands the value they get with TubeBuddy.
What is on your wish list for the next 5 years for TubeBuddy?
I’d like to see us provide more tools that help creators across all of their platform needs. Helping people beyond SEO and into content creation is always one of my main goals, so having a more streamlined list of tools that help people create better content would be awesome!
What is your favorite YouTube Channel and why?
Philip Defranco! For the last few years, learning about the world and current events has been difficult. There is a lot of click bait, and just uncertainty. However, with Philip Defranco, I can expect a quality production five days a week. It is also so refreshing to know that if any mistakes are made, his team owns up to them. It also happens to be the channel that helped me find my current girlfriend of almost two years, so it's an easy answer for me.
If you were a bird, what kind of bird would you be?
A peacock. At first glance they may look ordinary, but when they let their colors show, they are very elaborate and beautiful. I like to believe that looks are deceiving, but when you get know someone, that's when you see their inner beauty. As a bonus, the main villain in Kung Fu Panda 2 was a really cool peacock!
