Brad Jashinsky Website Header - At the Intersection of Marketing and Technology

Welcome to Brad Jashinsky’s blog at the intersection of marketing and technology.  A resource of marketing, digital marketing and entertainment industry insights and stories. I have been the Director of Marketing and Sales at John’s Incredible Pizza, where I oversee all sales and marketing activities for the company’s chain of restaurant family fun centers.

Before joining John’s, I drove successful business results through industry-leading marketing campaigns for companies in the entertainment, tourism, and technology industries, including the Knott’s Berry Farm theme park resort and Razer, the leading lifestyle consumer electronics brand for gamers. The postings on this site are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views of my employers.
