WHAT I DO
WHAT I'VE DONE
I'm Jared, and I tell people why the artform of gaming is wonderful. I deliver this message through the written word, as a public speaker, and using the medium of narrated video storytelling. Right now I'm telling that story as a contributing writer for IGN, host at Kinda Funny Games, and as producer of Red Dead Radio and the video essay series Hop, Blip, and a Jump. I also frequently enjoy the opportunity to talk about games as a guest host and moderator at live events like E3, Crunchyroll Expo, and PAX West.
I've served in media, publishing, and entertainment roles in the games industry. I was a social content editor and copywriter at Electronic Arts, contributing to marketing for EA Star Wars, Titanfall 2, and Fe. Prior to my time in publishing, I was Senior Editor at IGN Entertainment, the world's most prominent outlet for games coverage. I performed duties in features, news, reviews, previews, guides, community, hosting, and production during my IGN tenure.
I've been blessed with a diverse professional path, working as a copywriter, editor, producer, writer, social media specialist, freelancer, host, educator, network engineer, school teacher, and more. Two things have remained constant: my love of highlighting games as a new form of creative expression and my love of telling a good story that conveys a sense of wonder. I'm constantly finding new ways to weave those ambitions together.
I enjoy talking about games whenever I can and I'm happy to discuss hosting and speaking at events you're planning. In 2018 I hosted two panels at PAX West on Superman and Red Dead Redemption, a panel at Crunchyroll Expo with Dragon Quest creator Yuji Horii, and two E3 on-stage livestreams for GameSpot and Facebook Gaming. If you'd like to contact me about being part of an event please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I adore talk shows and podcasts and I've made guest appearances on IGN's Beyond, Game Scoop, and NVC shows, The Comedy Button, What's Good Games, Retronauts, Jeff Cannata's DLC, Girls on Games, and more. I'm always open to talking about visiting your podcast... please contact me at email@example.com.
I'm supported by writing fees, by the community on Patreon at http://reddeadradio.com, and by direct ad revenue through my podcasts. If you're looking for a helping hand at writing and editing, or if you're interested in advertising on Red Dead Radio, Contestants Are You Ready, or one of the products I create, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
