The new guy

Alan Hamari, PR and New Media SpecialistHi, everybody! I just wanted to say a quick hello as Pilch & Barnet’s soon-to-be new PR and New Media Specialist.

I will be starting full-time in the office next month, and I can’t wait to join my wonderful future coworkers, including longtime best bud and web designer extraordinaire Kindra Goehler.

A little bit about me: I was a reporter and editor (and jack-of-all-trades, really) at daily and weekly newspapers in Janesville and Milwaukee before making the transition to the PR and marketing side of things. I’m excited about jumping in feet-first and learning lots of new things.

I’m also excited about coming back to Madison, where I went to school and lived for two years while working at the Janesville Gazette. I can’t wait to kick back at the Terrace after work on some of those beautiful autumn evenings we have in Madison. (Also, go Badgers!)

When I’m not writing or keeping up on the latest social media trends, I enjoy reading (historical nonfiction is my genre of choice), watching movies (I unfortunately had to decline an invite to the midnight screening of “Captain America” tonight) and bicycling (though I’m more Louis Armstrong than Lance Armstrong in that department).

Anyway, I’m excited to be the latest addition to the wonderful staff at Pilch & Barnet, and I can’t wait to help meet our clients’ marketing and promotional needs!
