Hey there! My name is Joe Calderone, not to be confused with Jo Calderone. I’m from a suburb of Chicago, Illinois; a nice little city called Elmhurst. I have phenomenal facial hair, love discovering new music, run a 90′s parody Twitter account, and have an irrational fear of my umbrella flipping inside out.
Professionally, I handle online marketing for small businesses and individuals to increase brand awareness, customer loyalty, and generate new business. I began doing so after graduating Iowa Wesleyan College with a degree in Business Administration in 2010. While working freelance, I worked with companies such as Live Oracle, The Prep Room, Dios Design, as well as various local political campaigns.
After a year or so working on my own, I was hired by Vivid Ascent as an Assistant Account Executive. While holding that position I worked on accounts such as the Chicago Auto Show, Catholic Extension, Allstate Insurance, and Rust-Oleum IBG.
I left my position at Vivid Ascent in August of 2012 to start my own company: Calderone Ventures LLC. This company is home to the digital marketing agency Calderone Marketing as well as various other side projects.
You can find me all over social networks, probably over-sharing borderline inappropriate things:
