We sat down with Kent to ask him a few questions:
Here at WindFarm, we like to take time once in a while to highlight some of the rockin' talents we are privileged to work with every day. Today, we’re featuring one of our Inbound Marketing Consultants, Kent Peterson. Kent brings a unique and dynamic perspective to every project and client, and we so enjoy having him a part of the WindFarm team.
What were you doing before joining WindFarm?
For the last fifteen years, I have been a mural and faux finish artist in the Sacramento area. In addition, I have been a music director/worship pastor for a few different churches over the years. I decided to put my creative and administrative skills to work in a new field, which introduced me to the world of digital and inbound marketing. I began working for a local agency here in Roseville last year and was very excited to have the opportunity to join the team at Windfarm this year.
What made you decide to join the team at WindFarm Marketing?
I have known Josh, our CEO, for a number of years, and have always been interested in what he has been doing at Windfarm. In fact, when I began investigating other career opportunities that would be a good fit for me, Josh was the one that got me interested in pursuing digital marketing. While at the other agency last year, I connected with Windfarm about our agencies doing some client work together, and through that process became much more familiar with Windfarm. That confirmed what I already knew–Windfarm would be a fantastic team to work with. The values and the culture here are perfectly aligned with who I am.
What have you been most excited to learn/accomplish at WindFarm?
The more I learn about Inbound Marketing and all of the strategy and creativity that it involves, the more excited I get. I love to learn, and my goal is to become an Inbound Marketing guru. Being able to learn from the other experts here at Windfarm will, no doubt, make me a guru in no time.
How is being an artist and being a marketer similar or different?
