They will also provide insight into how you can use this data to grow and support your business.

About Rusty Waddell

Rusty Waddell was welcomed to the Studio Center team two years ago as our Social Media Strategist. He is a result-oriented individual who works well under pressure, both individually and as part of a team. As a Social Media Strategist, he is tasked with strategy, content creation and aggregation, content publishing, profile optimization, reputation management, ads management, and analytic reporting for each client. Rusty manages social media platforms for multiple clients including Zoës Restaurant, Beach FC, The Gourmet Gang, and Bay Local to name a few. A graduate of the Art Institute with a degree in photography, he brings his talent to Studio Center when client needs arise for still photography to feature on their websites, social media posts, menus, and/or print projects. Rusty juggles a lot here at Studio Center but is also an accomplished juggler. He is a first-time dad to a beautiful, little girl named Ellie. When he needs to decompress he can be found playing classic video games, refining his baking skills, and painting.
