ABOUT NATHAN OWENS

Working in digital marketing in the television industry for the last few years has allowed me to expand my horizons and skill set considerably. Starting off with a focus in web-site management, I very quickly moved into social media where I excelled in not only promoting on air channels, but also shaping campaigns for local productions. With experience in production, postproduction, and broadcast, I consider myself to be a diverse talent.
