ABOUT ME

rago-freelance-contract-925809-pandemic-

Jackie Ortiz (she/they) is a dynamic leader and community advocate deeply committed to DEIA and building equitable, safe spaces. Based in Pasadena, California, Jackie is a freelance strategist and the Senior Social Lead at Blurb. She's also severely uncomfortable talking in the third-person, so let's just stop that part here 😉.

With keen focus on storytelling and community building, I offer over a decade of expertise in crafting brand presence, executing results-driven integrated marketing campaigns, and fostering creative concepts. I've had the pleasure of bridging artists, businesses, and personal brands to the right audiences.

When I'm not slanging creative, I'm on the quest for the perfect cup of boba, traveling in my DIY campervan, or creating short-form video content. Learn more about my food writing & travel adventures here.

FEATURED ON

I penned a blog post advocating for deep work practices to shift the tides of an "always on" social media industry.

I joined 10 former arts administrators to discuss the pandemic's impact on our futures, and our eventual decision not to return.

The Inquirer interviewed me about the origins of my former t-shirt company, Sarap Tees (active 2018-2023).
