I'm Cameron. This site is my hub. I have various 100-word blurbs about life and career on the Hundred Words page above. Professionally, I am currently a Snr. Researcher with MailChimp.
I grew up in Cajun country, Louisiana. I had a moment of importance when I failed my 10th grade year of high school, and learned to become fluid rather than static (aka Growth mindset.) I figured out academics and ended up graduating with honors. I went to LSU, where I got a 4.0 GPA in pre-medical biochemistry for the first couple of years, until I came to my senses about who I wanted to be. I shopped majors again and landed on English literature. After undergrad, I wandered and found the account planning Master's degree program at UT in Austin.
From there I would start my career as a Creative Strategist in digital located in Dallas. I took a hiatus and went to be with my brother in Chicago, where I served food and beverages (lots and lots of beverages) in the luxury boxes of Wrigley Field for the Cubs. I found my way back to branding at JWT. I moved with JWT to San Francisco. Later, I went into direct marketing for Dell.
Then suddenly I was pulled into the world of teaching at an art school. I would become the director of the university's Creative Strategy department. For about a decade, we built a kickass program. I spent hundreds of hours with hundreds of "global millennials." We discussed technology, culture, dreams, behaviors, desires, possibilities, decisions, and more. Then I decided to wander. I drove across the country. Did some freelance strategy work. Enjoyed life. Recently, I found bliss as a research person in the product team at MailChimp. I am based in the Bay Area.
Thanks for being here. Please ping me. I'll ping back.
