JORDAN WEATHERSTON PITTS
Opera Singer & Social Media Manager
Jordan Weatherston Pitts has a lot of insight in personal branding and social media, with followers in the thousands. Jordan studied vocal performance, and as a fledgling opera singer didn’t quite have confidence to build his social media presence. However, he has recently worked to create an online brand for himself first on Instagram, and now TikTok. As Jordan has continued to grow his career and his brand, as well as work as a content creator for the Metropolitan Museum of Modern Art, he brings to the table his experience in keeping his brand alive (and his sanity!) despite the industry going dark, and some tips, tools and tricks of trade to boost social media presence.
