Angel D. Gonzalez Bio:

Angel D. Gonzalez is one of three founders and currently serves as Chief Marketing Officer for Snappy Kraken, overseeing the company’s brand, voice and content strategy. His big focus is in copywriting, marketing strategy, content creation, and product development. Angel spends a big part of his days connecting the different pieces of marketing campaigns and collaborating with his team.

“Our team is more like a rock band. We play our individual instruments, and we play well together. There are a couple huge benefits to thinking this way: First, it keeps our ego in check so we can collaborate easily and create something bigger than any of us could do on our own. And it reminds us that we have an obligation to inspire an audience and include them in the fun.”

Prior to founding Snappy Kraken with Robert and Brad, Angel was co-owner and founder of a digital agency which provided small businesses with website redesigns and marketing strategy. Along the way, Angel has served as a digital marketer and Director of Marketing for a financial marketing company.

“Marketing isn’t about one-off attempts at getting attention. You have to think in campaigns. You have to sweat upfront and be deliberate about all of the moving parts. But who has the time for that, especially if you’re running your own practice or serving clients? That’s why we built Snappy Kraken.”

Angel is practically a nomad. He resides mostly in Airbnb rentals near good food and large bodies of water. He loves techie gadgets, music, and movies…but he’s an obsessive freak when it comes to books.
