The Spring Influence: Our Team Continues To Blossom!

March 26th, 2015 by Aubrey Ahmed

Search Influence continues to grow! We are very excited to announce that three new Influencers have joined our Content Team.

Jesse-LaierJesse Laier – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Jesse defines himself as a bit of an eccentric. Originally from Miami, he spent most of the past decade going to school in Tallahassee and Chicago. In his free time, he conceives new story ideas, even if he never actually writes them. The most important things to know about him are that he’s a staff writer for a music blog and an avid NBA fan, and his secret talent is that he’s a trained mime!

JoshSheltonJosh Shelton – 
Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Freshly returned from two years in Cameroon with the Peace Corps, Josh grew up in Shreveport and went to school at Louisiana College in Pineville, once known (locally) as “Harvard on the Red.” He put his English degree to good use by working for private ambulance companies in Shreveport and New Orleans. Josh is thrilled to finally have a job focused on writing and editing. His free time is spent folding origami frogs and making fruity wine.

 – Junior Internet Marketing Associate

Ray Whitlow grew up in California, but he bounced around Iowa and Upstate New York before eventually settling in New Orleans. He studied anthropology in college and graduate school, all while conducting research in Romania, where he visited many of Dracula’s castles (all fake). Ray started editing in college and has since worked with a number of corporate, academic, and governmental clients from around the world. Now he lives in the Upper Ninth Ward, where he’s slowly rebuilding a shotgun double into a little paradise for him, his partner Claire, and their rescue dogs.

Welcome to Search Influence, Jesse, Josh, and Raymond! We’re glad to have you on the team.
