Corey Long

Producer / Project Manager / Writer

Portland, OR, USA
I’ve gone from client work to agency work and have worked on impactful projects for huge brands. I’ve worked on the UX, Design, and customer experience of the NIKEiD builder for Nike. I’ve managed a paid media campaign for the Microsoft Holiday 2013 through Razorfish, helping to manage vendors, assets, and coordination with publishers. I’ve worked on B2B marketing automation and demand generation strategy for Windstream while partnering with a brand agency. I’ve put together numerous digital retail campaigns for Nike, spanning Running, Soccer, Football, Basketball, and Sportswear that included native rich media units, animated Instagram videos created using models and stop-motion product, and micro sites for retailers such as Finish Line, Dick’s Sporing Goods, and Foot Locker as well as the Nike homepage. I’ve also managed the Android and iOS app teams for Sam’s Club, building and improving upon a well-reviewed and massive brand as part of the Walmart eCommerce team. This is all in addition to 5 years with Blue Shield of California in a variety of healthcare project management roles.

I’ve written for SB Nation, a Vox Media site and other sports sites. I’ve also launched my own news and entertainment site and brand called Huge Nerd Network, which has me building on Wordpress, designing, video and sound editing, podcasting, writing, and more. In short, I am a well-rounded producer and project manager with multimedia, development, and design experience. I’m always ready for the next challenge and always willing to learn something new.
