My name is John Arender and I’m a versatile creative professional with a passion for sports, creative media, and social media marketing. Throughout my career, I have developed a unique skill set that includes video production, media direction, and social media coordination. I take great pride in my ability to bring innovative ideas to life and create captivating content that engages audiences.
As the Director of Video Production at Noble Motive Creative Studio, I’ve had the pleasure of conceptualizing, producing, and editing a wide range of video projects to meet the goals of our diverse clientele. My strong communication skills, creative direction expertise, and proficiency in operating cameras, lighting, and audio equipment have led to the successful execution of numerous projects.
During my time as Media Director at The Church at 4Points, I was responsible for developing the church’s media strategy, managing social media accounts, and directing weekly live streams. My strategic communications plan significantly contributed to a 54% growth in the church’s online presence.
As a Social Media Coordinator for Hattiesburg High School Athletics, I built social media accounts from scratch, developed content plans for graphics, photo, and video content, and oversaw a student-produced multi-cam live stream of football games. My efforts led to impressive growth in followers and engagement across Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter, and our cinematic football highlight videos averaged over 35,000 views weekly.
I hold a bachelor’s degree in journalism with an emphasis in public relations from The University of Southern Mississippi, which has provided me with a solid foundation in every creative field. My experience in videography, photography, graphic design, and social media marketing demonstrates my commitment to creating engaging and creative content.
When I’m not working on projects, I enjoy cheering on The Golden Eagles, Atlanta Braves, or New Orleans Saints with my wife Julie. I’m always eager to learn new skills and stay up-to-date on the latest trends in the creative media industry. If you’re looking for someone who is dedicated, adaptable, and passionate about their work, you’ve come to the right place.
