Having studied design at UCLA, Kel had originally intended to enter into a marketing role upon graduation, either in a large firm or a startup. However, she met Kong and Jesse and, luckily, they convinced her to take a risk and join their startup, Jumpcut. Now, Kel considers her risky move the best she’s ever made.
For Kel, no two days are the same at Jumpcut. Overseeing the course creation process requires involvement in every facet of production—researching, writing, filming, and editing. Typically, the course creation process takes Kel and her team six weeks from the initial brainstorming session until the final cut—all to create a two-hour course.
“We make online courses that feel like movies—with elements of storytelling, characters, a narrative, creative visuals and a soundtrack—then combine them with information to create compelling online courses.”
“Working at a startup is the best decision I’ve ever made—all my friends are still either looking for a job or are in the lowest level at a big corporation, whereas I’ve been able to climb the ladder.”
