PAUL THELEN

SR. DIGITAL CONTENT MANAGER
 

As a Sr. Digital Content Manager, Paul leads the content team by 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 storytelling, 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 his BS from Minnesota State Mankato. Paul has been writing for online audiences for six years, getting his start by covering the NFL as a sportswriter. Soon after, he transitioned to copywriting and has been loving it ever since.

Get to know Paul

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 like to cook, play basketball, see concerts, watch movies, and to get lost in a great book.

If you could have dinner with three people (present or past) who would they be? Barack Obama, F. Scott Fitzgerald, and LeBron James.

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