Senior Account Executive
Dewayne loves words. Whether it's writing press releases, blogs or social media posts, he understands the importance of using the best language for each situation.
A former network news journalist, Dewayne has been on the leading edge of events that have shaped our world for the past two decades. He is a huge fan of social media, and puts his journalism background to work writing 140 character headlines, engaging followers on Twitter, talking with fans on Facebook and building relationships on LinkedIn.
A "newsie" for more than two decades, including working for two national networks, Dewayne uses his knowledge of traditional and social media to build relationships with local, national and industry journalists for Mercury Labs' clients!
During his time as a journalist, he has written on every presidential election since 1992, the attack on Oklahoma City's Murrah Federal Building , the September 11th terrorist attacks, numerous natural disasters, the funerals of Ronald Reagan, Gerald Ford and Pope John Paul II, the kidnapping and rescue of Elizabeth Smart, the trials of Michael Jackson, and several award shows, including the Academy Awards.
Dewayne also loves great BBQ, his godchildren and his Jayhawks, although not necessarily in that order.
