Paul Thelen


As a Digital Content Manager, Paul is tasked with creating and implementing content marketing strategies for our wide array of awesome clients. Blogs, website copy, email copy, brand resources – you name it and he’ll write it. Content marketing is all about telling stories, and the best element of his job is learning the unique voice of his clients and channeling it to broadcast their story to digital audiences.

Paul received his MFA from Hamline University and my BS from Minnesota State Mankato. Paul has been writing for online audiences for about 5 years, getting his start by covering the NFL as a sportswriter. Soon after, he transitioned to copywriting and has been loving it ever since.

If you weren’t working at Parqa, what would you be doing? I almost went to law school instead of pursuing my MFA, so I’d probably be an attorney if I didn’t get into digital marketing.

Any hidden talents or hobbies? I can juggle and am low-key super good at Heads Up

What is your favorite thing about working at Parqa? A lot of companies say they have a great work culture, but here at Parqa we actually have one. I love the competitive and caring environment here.

What do you like to do for fun? I love sports, movies, and reading.

The best piece advice you’ve ever received? “Don’t put off until tomorrow what you can do today.”

What was your first job? I was a line cook at a little pizzeria. I was terrible at throwing dough but it was a blast.
