Made in Hell-A
Chic Little Devil PR
I was born in Los Angeles and raised in it and the surrounding areas- but that doesn't mean you should ask me for directions. You can, however, ask me to show you my star-studded copy of the Ribet Academy yearbook from '95 or where to get the best tacos at any given time.
I attended California State University Northridge where I studied Journalism with an emphasis in PR. There, I studied abroad for a year in the South of France and interned for DDA PR during the Cannes Film Festival (where I got yelled at by Harvey Weinstein which was terrifying; and met Ryan Gosling which was not only not terrifying, but also in the top 5 things that will probably ever happen to me).
After that, I interned with Chic Little Devil PR, where I mostly looked up journalists to harass on Cision but also stared at paparazzi photos of Demi Lovato to see if she wore the jewelry we sent her. (She didn’t.) After I graduated, I was a personal assistant for an executive producer from Sri Lanka. While working for him, I did everything from rolling calls and filing to scheduling appointments and managing his calendar. I also wrote PR materials for a film camp he ran for Sri Lankan youths every summer as well as some housesitting (read: dog walking and HBO Go-watching).
After a brief stint as an assistant publicist at an entertainment PR firm in Sherman Oaks that wasn’t a good fit for me, I hopped on a bike and rode it 545 miles from SF to LA to raise awareness for those affected by HIV/AIDS.
After that, PR and Social Media for my friend’s clothing line, Made in Hell-A. If it sounds familiar, that’s because our “Dries Please” tee is almost sold out on your site! I mostly focus on tweeting funny pictures and thinking of clever things we can post on Instagram, but most recently, after a recent Praduh sighting on Game of Thrones star Maisie Williams' Twitter, I’ve shifted my focus to celebrity outreach and placement.
As you could probably tell from my 43K+ tweets, I've been doing Social Media for a while. I’m a really fast typer and an even faster learner. Other things I’m really good at include: giving relationship advice (three-time Gossip Girl watcher/avid Deepak reader here) , organizing, judging people based on their astrological signs (rising sign required), recommending skin care routines, getting to work on time and being a team player.
I'm also hella good at being a middle child, which comes in handy a lot more than most people think it would.
But enough about me—this is about you, and why you should contact me for any social media services you might need.
