Hi there! Welcome to my personal website. I hope you find some interesting information while you are here. If there’s anything you would like to know, feel free to email me at timw@q.digital or reach out to me on Twitter at @timwinfred.

Here’s a bit of background information about my career in digital marketing and my connection to the LGBT community…

As the Director of Marketing and Brand Campaigns at Q.Digital, Inc., I currently manage the marketing team and lead digital marketing campaigns for a variety of brands, across a range of industries and verticals. Since starting with Q.Digital in late 2015, I have worked with a variety of clients, including 20th Century Fox, Alaska Airlines, AT&T, Corona USA, Fox Searchlight Pictures, HBO, Las Vegas Convention and Visitors Authority, Lexus, San Francisco Travel Association, Sony Pictures, Stoli Vodka, Target, Trivago, Universal Pictures and Walt Disney Pictures, among others.

My day-to-day at Q.Digital varies dramatically. One day I might be helping the sales team build sponsorship packages, create proposal decks and design mock-ups in response to RFPs, then the next day I might be managing brand marketing campaign efforts, including paid and organic social media, influencer marketing and celebrity partnerships, branded content, email marketing, event production, and media and public relations. In any given day, I typically manage between five and ten different brand marketing campaigns.

With a combination of more than six years of professional digital marketing experience, including a Bachelors degree in Advertising from San Jose State University, I have held roles both in-house and agency-side at Shutterfly, HealthyPets and PRxDigital.

In addition to my professional marketing career…

In October of 2013 I moved abroad for a year to teach English as a Second Language (ESL) at a private school in Anyang, South Korea. While there, I spent my extra time creating and growing a website and ecommerce store called Dragaholic.com. The site, which quickly became the world’s largest drag queen entertainment news blog, was acquired by Q.Digital shortly after I returned to the United States.

In the 16 months I independently operated Dragaholic, the site received more than 3.5 million pageviews, and acquired over 50,000 social media followers and 2,300 newsletter subscribers. In addition, more than 100 people purchased at least one item from the ecommerce store. Dragaholic quickly became a powerful and influential brand within the LGBT community.

Dragaholic was my baby and my first venture into entrepreneurship… but it definitely won’t be my last! I’m actually working on a few new ideas now, so stay tuned to find out what they are.

That’s not it…

My life is more than just business and marketing. In addition to cooking, jet-setting and art, one of my favorite hobbies is doing red carpet coverage for Queerty.com. I love being able to hit the carpet, interview a few celebrities, and edit the video footage into fun clips. Check out some of my favorite red carpet moments below. Enjoy!
