About

Darnell BradySpreadHDGFX: Darnell Brady,

My name is Darnell Brady and I am a social media marketing specialist currently working for Air Force Athletics in Colorado Springs, CO, as the Assistant Director of Marketing and Fan Engagement. I have the opportunity to share the story of the Air Force Academy’s cadet-athletes as they compete and prepare to become second lieutenants in the United States Air Force. In my current position, I run numerous social media platforms, train staff and coaches on social strategy, produce and manage content for our revenue generating sports, create and execute marketing plans for Air Force hockey and various partnerships, track and measure all analytical performance on social media and website platforms, and so much more.

Prior to this position, I was an intern for Penn State Athletics working for as a photographer, graphic designer for various Olympic sports along with a game day intern for baseball.

In addition, I was the PR/Marketing Officer and then the President of Nittany Nation (renamed in 2015 to Legion of Blue), the student section for Penn State basketball. Throughout my time with Nittany Nation, I managed social media, led student section cheers, and organized events to grow enthusiasm for Penn State basketball.

I’m a Pennsylvania native and a proud graduate of the Pennsylvania State University where I majored in Telecommunications. Throughout my college career, I was heavily involved in Homecoming, the Penn State Dance MaraTHON, and Silver Wings.

Outside of work, I enjoy hiking with my two dogs, Locke and Boone. I love landscape and star trail photography as I was heavily influenced by Ansel Adams growing up. I also enjoying learning how to ski, swimming, photography, water polo, and binge watching Psych and Scrubs.
