Melissa Santiago

Senior Strategist

Melissa wasn’t born in California, but after 12 years she’s almost forgotten the humidity from her formative years in Florida.

Fascinated with social media since its first incarnation, Mel's typing skills were remarkably improved by endless chat binges on AOL Instant Messenger. She earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Florida State University and began work as a commercial photographer. She eventually managed to wrangle all of her social media prowess into getting paid to represent brands online (much to her mother’s surprise, who still asks, "what is a twitter?”).

She had her first run with M/H in 2015 where she spent nearly four years working on globally recognized brands—Netflix, Audi, method Home, Lyft, Hulu, and more.
