Hey, I'm Ash Eliot. I like to oversee communications, digital strategy, partnerships and creator relations for beverage brands, tech, non-profits & musicians with an emphasis on developing unique content strategies with a positive impact on our world.

 

With over 12 years of experience in marketing & communications for corporations, agencies & media, I've worn a lot of different hats but that's the only way to progress, learn and carve your own path in this wild place.
