About me

A black and white headshot of Colten GillBased in Pittsburgh, I graduated cum laude from Point Park University with a B.S. degree in Sports, Arts, and Entertainment Management.

During my four years at Point Park, I was an actively engaged student leader, serving as the Executive Director for the Campus Activities Board as well as being named the 2017 Distinguished Student by the Point Park Alumni Association.

I have experience with non-profits such as the Pittsburgh Downtown Partnership, where over my time there I’ve helped grow their Instagram following from 1,000 to over 19,500 followers, written countless newsletter articles, and helped manage and run events ranging in attendance from 100 to 500,000 attendees. Having been involved with the PDP for over three years, I currently manage select dates of the Saturday Night Market series in Market Square.

At work, I’m a digital intelligence analyst at an energetic start-up on the North Shore. I’ve also been a narrator for Just Ducky Tours, an Exhibits Presenter at the Carnegie Science Center, and a barista at your local Barnes & Noble Café.

Personally, I enjoy long walks along the Point, defending the proper pronunciation of the word “gif,” and curating my Instagram feed.

Work Philosophy

We’re all telling stories. Whether it’s selling a product, providing a service, or improving the world around us, everything we do furthers the plot, and effective strategies for management, communications, and events all help your story make the best-seller list.

I believe in always challenging myself and those around me to be better, that it’s best to know what you don’t know – then master it, and that small details add up to a larger picture.
