I’m Erin Ray - a dynamic, enthusiastic, and educated individual committed to producing the highest quality projects. My 7+ years of experience in the entertainment and tech industry has improved my ability to problem solve, deliver projects from start to finish, and manage expectations. Working directly with large companies in the Silicon Valley area and beyond - Facebook, Google, adidas, Coca-Cola, and the International Olympic Committee, to name a few - has evolved my understanding of the business, new technologies, and environments. On a daily basis, the direct conversations I participated in or lead, through email, phone or video calls, ensured client expectations were met, and relationships were built and maintained across every project.
