Tripepi Smith welcomes Skylar Hunter as a new business analyst to the team. A former Public Relations Specialist with the City of Lake Forest, Skylar brings his experience working in a public agency combined with his creative talents in areas of graphic design and audio/video production. No stranger to adapting to new technologies, Skylar was responsible for engineering the City’s award winning livestream of City Council meetings over Facebook Live while allowing for public comment. He also produced, filmed, and edited numerous video projects including a televised commercial, short film, and weekly video series.
“I am thrilled to join Tripepi Smith. My core passion is to use new technology and the growing array of communications tools to connect communities to the agencies that represent them,” said Skylar. “With Tripepi Smith I am looking forward to continuing that passion, contributing my knowledge, growing professionally, learning all I can and helping public agencies tell their stories using creative media.”
Skylar graduated with a Bachelor of Arts in Film with an emphasis in Theory, Audio Production, and Scriptwriting from CSU Long Beach in May 2012. He then went on to obtain a Master of Arts in Film Studies from Chapman University in May 2014 and followed that up with a second Master of Arts in Public Relations from Full Sail University in June 2015.
“Skylar’s educational background and innovative spirit are emblematic of our ‘Always Be Learning” culture at Tripepi Smith. I am excited to put his talents to work for our clients and see the results of his efforts,” said Tripepi Smith President Ryder Todd Smith. “We are experiencing tremendous demand for our services, and a strong utility player like Skylar will benefit many of our programs and deliveries.”
