Jack Dimond

Jack Dimond

Digital Seer

Jack Dimond is a junior at ASU, majoring in marketing. Fueled by his
passion to strengthen his creative side, he spent time learning digital art
and traditional animation at Ringling College of Art Design in Sarasota, FL. There, he gained a strong knowledge and appreciation for graphic design and the inner workings of design programs like Photoshop.

Now, he is merging his passion for art with his knowledge and love for
business. He is very focused, has amazing attention to detail, and is disciplined and determined. His determination to succeed and his organizational skills are a great asset to CloudNine Marketing’s
team and their clients.

Jack’s position as "Digital Seer" allows him to use his creative acumen in
the real world. It gives him experience working in a relevant field that
he’s been tracking toward upon graduation. As he builds on his knowledge of CRM and SEO, he will also understand how much art and visual components can impact any business.

Be it the design of a website, or the appeal of a specific blog, he’s very
excited to not just employ his creative side, but greatly expand on it in
the business world.

Justin Rudick

Justin Rudick

Digital Wiz

Justin Rudick is a junior at ASU’s WP Carey School of Business and an intern at CloudNine Marketing. His existing knowledge of WordPress and the inner workings of social and digital media will be expanded on to create a solid foundation for his career path. His knowledge will drive the success of CloudNine’s clients and grow their sister site www.HolisticHealingNews.com.

For years, Justin has been a gymnastics instructor and coach of young children. He finds this the most rewarding experience of his life. He’s always viewed coaching “the kids” as a learning experience rather than a job and believes this enables him to succeed.

His position with CloudNine and www.HolisticHealingNews.com will provide him lifelong knowledge about health and wellness in a very unique manner. Many of the goals and visions of this internship align with his values. Staying healthy and active is always at the top of his priority list, especially in the hot summers of Arizona. Overall, his passion in life is to make a positive impact in the world.

He’s excited to be in a position where we can fulfill his personal goals and create goodwill. He’s pursuing a certificate in Hebrew as well.
