Erick Brownstein

I am a new media entrepreneur. I help brands, and the agencies that support them, be more successful online.

I’m currently focused on helping advertisers & content owners unlock the explosive world of social video.

On the client and the agency side, I’ve helped senior executives across multiple industries navigate the ever-changing digital landscape. My experience ranges from advising the CEOs of multi-billion dollar companies to directing international environmental and human rights campaigns and volunteering with Mother Theresa at her Home for the Sick & Dying Destitute in Calcutta.

As a builder, I have assembled and led teams to conceive of, develop, launch and promote successful consumer facing brands, and integrate them with meaningful causes.

As a showman and producer, I created and launched a Vegas show as well as the first Social Media Week Los Angeles, a massive conference spanning multiple industries with over 80 events across the city.

I served as the Executive Director of ThursdayNights.org, Silicon Beach’s premier group of decision-makers and investors in companies from Internet, Digital Media, Software, Gaming and Mobile (while raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for at-risk youth). An award-winning public speaker, I MC’d bloblive, (a celebrated series of ‘open mic nights for entrepreneurs’) and hosted ‘Meet the Angels,’ a live video show connecting entrepreneurs and investors.

Although I have been called a smarty pants because I graduated magna cum laude from Duke University with a B.S. in Economics, I now believe that grades take the fun out of failing, so I homeschool my boys and believe the love of learning drives success in an entrepreneurial world.

And finally, in theory more than practice, I surf, play poker and practice martial arts.
