Darren Nesbitt

Social Media Strategist

A day without something new is wasted.

Hey, I'm a social media strategist and planner based in New York.

Most of my experience has been with Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) clients. I'm hoping to broaden that experience and push my planning and analyzing skills to the next level.

But you're not here to read about that right? My personal passions are TV dramas (Walking Dead, HTGAWM, Downton Abbey...etc.) FPV Drone Racing and indie southern rap artists on Soundcloud. I'm usually live-tweeting shows, searching Tumblr for inspiration, collecting high-protein meal recipies on Pinterest and digesting the top Twitter news before my head hits the pillow. I'm immersed in social outside in and outside of work.
