ROAD TUNES is a fledgling company focused on taking the public art project of the “War Eagle Road” and creating a custom-designed musical road business that will sell similar installations to other towns, universities and special events.  This intern will work to create the initial social media presence designed to attract new customers.

Create and maintain the social media accounts of a new company’s launch and support PR/Publicity efforts during the launch phase to attract new customers.

No compensation.  This is a fledgling company with no real income or private capital.  A “bonus” may be considered if the intern’s work led directly to successfully attracting new customers.

AU - Industrial Engineering graduate, 20-year career as an independent filmmaker in Hollywood, CA, and the inventor of the innovative surface-application design of Auburn’s “War Eagle Road” musical road installation.  These seemingly diverse experiences allow me to mentor skills like creative problem solving, multimedia & design, corporate networking and basic entrepreneurship.
