BIO


SCROLL DOWN

BIO


No one is you, and that is your power.

If you're reading this, I suppose I'm doing something right. My name is Brittany Misra and I am currently a Project Manager who recently returned to the Dirty South HQ, Atlanta, GA [cue Outkast] after a 2 year sabbatical New York City.

I first came to Atlanta just over a decade ago to attend Emory University, where I studied Anthropology and Sociology. I have always been profoundly interested in what motivates people, and why things are the way they are. 

Graduating during the peak of the recession in 2008 left me with few job prospects leading me to continue pursuing education in Web Design and Interactive Media at the Art Institute of Atlanta. My previous experience with research and studying human behavior gave me an upper-hand in courses like UX and usability testing, and allowed me to naturally lead with user focused design strategy.

Over the last 9 years, my curiosity and desire to learn has brought me to many multiple sides of the digital ecosystem, from ghostwriting and social media content curation, to project and account management, web design, paid search, and most recently adtech. It's safe to say I've gotten my hands sufficiently dirty, and have learned a lot along the way.

In the digital world, it is easy to get caught up on focusing on the urgent while neglecting the important. At this stage of my career, I am interested in helping organizations hone in on the often back-burnered "important" pile, streamline processes, lead from principle, optimize communications, both internally and externally, to deliver a quality product to a happy client, and ultimately improve quality of life at work for all parties involved. Things can always be made better.

Extracurriculars:  adventures with my camera, writing, covering things with glitter, hunting street art, reading, learning about crystals, and binge watching documentaries.

If you must try to label me:

  • Briggs Myers: ENFP

  • Strength Finder 2.0 Themes: Adaptability, Empathy, Input, Ideation, Developer
