My Name is Chris Gobell and I studied communications with an emphasis in environmental studies at UC San Diego. Much of my research at UC San Diego was geared towards Communications, marketing and coastal environmental issues, both on a local and global scale actively using my communications studies as a platform for representing these areas. Issues such as the California water crisis and local water quality would represent some of the specific areas of research I have conducted. My communications studies also allowed me to find my passion in brand marketing and advertising. I began work with Blenders Eyewear in La Jolla as a brand ambassador and was able to apply my passion for marketing through the brand as a sales representative both in social media and in person. Working as a brand ambassador I actively implemented tabling, outside sales, social media marketing, and distribution of the product while working closely with the sales and marketing team. I am very interested in pursuing a career in communications and marketing while furthering my skills in public relations and product awareness.
