Hey, I’m JL Watkins. Nice to meet you!
Thanks for stopping by my personal website, which mostly serves as a spot to find portfolio links and videos. I’m based in Portland, Oregon.
Currently, I’m the Manger of Global Video Operations for Palo Alto Networks, the leading cyber security company. I manage a kick-ass team of video content producers who travel the globe, shooting cool videos and sharing our cyber security story.
Previously, I was the Creative & Marketing Director at the nationally syndicated morning news show The Daily Buzz. I was part of the show for the last few seasons, and accomplished a major overhaul of the look and branding of the show. I managed the promotions and digital staff, and created marketing materials for our local stations, in-house sales department, and the program’s syndication team.
Additionally, I also oversaw the brand management for our other national shows including, Life Love Shopping. It was lifestyle news and product placement show that’s targeted to a female demo. Mojo Brands Media had a bunch of the English and Spanish-language shows that launched in the summer of 2013.
I’ve worked in broadcast television for the past 17 years, primarily and a videographer/editor – that was usually my title, but I’ve always worked across departments and on important and special projects everywhere I’ve been employed.
