Charles “Marrelli” Marrelli: The Writer
I’m an amateur DJ, aspiring travel photographer, and married father of five children in Fairfield, CT. I received a master’s degree in interactive marketing and a bachelor’s degree in advertising from The Florida State University in Tallahassee, FL.
I've spent my entire career planning, designing and producing immersive experiences on behalf of blue-chip clients. I’m best at branded content, interactive storytelling, conversational commerce, and diagnostic tools. But I also love to write old-fashioned print ads, banners, emails, text links, everything.
I have been fortunate to write and direct engaging content for 21 Grams, Tango Modem, Arnold Worlwide, Havas, Digitas, Brand Studios, Comrade, Concept One, and Modem Media.
My preferred categories are tech, entertainment, travel, financial, pharma, OTC, and CPG. That said, I’ve never met a subject that I don’t enjoy—including chronic migraine, programmatic marketing, mainframes, ETFs, private jets, and pattern hair loss. I genuinely love every subject I work on, and I hope it shows.
