Morgan Barclay – We said farewell to Brien Downie last week as he embarks on his next life journey through UCLA Anderson’s MBA program this fall. This week, we say hello to Morgan, who will be filling Brien’s shoes. Morgan joins the Innovations team in LA from marketing and distribution at Endemol Digital. Before Endemol, Morgan worked for MySpace on their integrated marketing team focused on branded web content and digital distribution. Prior to that he helped launch MSN’s search media platform and spent several years on the account side at Avenue A-Razorfish. Morgan grew up on a Christmas Tree farm, but ironically loves New York City. WELCOME MORGAN!
Ben Davis – Ben is our new summer intern (or, summer superstars, as we like to call them) in the NY office. Ben is originally from Long Island, NY and will be a senior at the University of Michigan in the fall where he is studying Communications and Economics. At UM, he is president of the school’s major student concert board, and just came back from studying abroad in Rome this past semester. He’s a sucker for MTV, VH1, and E reality shows – a hard habbit to break! WELCOME BEN!
Janice Reinold – Janice is our new summer superstar in the LA office. She is a graduate student at the University of Southern California, studying communication management and entertainment marketing, and has a Bachelor’s Degree in television/video productions and development from Emerson College. In addition to her internship, Janice is currently working on her Master’s thesis where she is exploring American sitcoms and its humor for the Japanese audience, and recently came back from Japan for her data collection. Before starting at USC, she was a Project Coordinator at BRC Imagination Arts in Burbank and an intern at Comedy Central and at The Sheppard, a branded entertainment firm. Janice spent most of her life living overseas, including Japan, Germany, and Belgium. During her free time, she likes to play tennis, the piano, and write on her blog (which you can read here) where she shares thoughts on social media. If you would like some background music while you work, check her out on YouTube and she’ll play you a tune! She’s also an “expert” on Guitar Hero and is open for any challenges! WELCOME JANICE!
