Sam Slaughter is a content strategy consultant and dog owner. He is the founder of the content agency Lighthouse Creative Group.
My day job is helping brands big and small make content that helps their business grow. Among the big ones: Coca-Cola, American Express, General Electric, Comcast/NBCU, Facebook, and UNICEF; smaller brands have included GumGum, Uncubed, InVision, and Barkbox. I'm also a regular on the marketing lecture circuit, where I talk mainly about the value of storytelling as a tool for companies.
Over the course of my career I've been a writer and editor for numerous different outlets, including The New York Times, NY1, Ad Age, and Philadelphia Weekly. I was also a DJ for a number of years, at a series of bars and clubs nearly all of which are (coincidentally, I maintain) now out of business.
In previous roles I have been a writer and producer at NY1, Managing Editor of Comcast.net, and employee #1 at Contently, where I ran the marketing department (full CV is here). I currently sit on the boards of The Contently Foundation and the Horace W. Goldsmith Foundation.
