My name is Amanda Martinek and I have a strong passion and love for producing all facets of media; social, digital, print, radio, and video. I am currently a Social Media Strategist at 85Sixty, a digital marketing agency in Solana Beach where I create and execute in-depth social strategy for an array of clients.
I am an alumnus of University of California, San Diego with a degree in Communications and Writing. Born and raised in Southern California; I love the ocean and being outdoors. I was an editorial intern at TransWorld SURF magazine during the summer of 2012.
I am very passionate about music; I am the Editor in Chief for ListenSD.com, a San Diego music webshow and website. I was a social media and marketing intern at Surfdog Records, a senior staff writer for the UCSD Guardian, a promotions intern for San Diego radio station KPRI 102.1 FM and had a weekly radio show on university radio station KSDT.
Traveling is one of my favorite things to do; I studied abroad in Brighton, England in 2010 and again in Melbourne, Australia in 2011. I spent three months in Lima, Peru, taking Spanish language classes in 2012.
I also currently volunteer as the social media manager for Brother Benno’s, a non-profit, volunteer orangization in North County, San Diego serving the poor and homeless.
