Jarrett tells a story. To Jarrett, writing is cathartic—so it was no surprise when he ended up in journalism school at the University of North Texas. There, he managed and contributed to a handful of online publications while learning the ins and outs of strategic communications and public relations. By telling stories in his community and working with local nonprofits like Meals on Wheels and Carter BloodCare, Jarrett found himself at the intersection of communications and advocacy—and the rest is history. His post-graduation endeavors took him to Memphis, Tennessee, where he spent four years consulting and diving into the world of content marketing and digital strategy for an international nonprofit membership organization. Grind City could only keep a Texan away for so long before Jarrett moved to Austin to tell the story of Mighty Citizen. When he’s not writing, you’ll find Jarrett playing piano and violin, cooking, establishing a definitive ranking of donuts in Austin, and talking about Frank Ocean.
