Working tirelessly to make the internet safer
In the social-media era we need more tools to keep ourselves safe from attacks online, where we would use an antivirus to protect our computers, we should do the same to protect social media. I set out to create targeted cybersecurity services like Crosslink to help keep end users and communities safe without relying on the high turnaround for platform-wide anti-abuse.
I also have deep roots in community management & social media management. Gaining early experience with content creator communities gave me incredibly valuable insight into brand safety, platform responsibility & careful conduct. Fostering a healthy community is multifaceted, requiring careful conduct, community incentives, exemplary leadership & safety for community members. I have extensive experience bringing all of these aspects into multitudes of different communities & topics.
NASCAR, during the launch of their Discord community, wished to have the ability to stream their drivers' radios & associated radio stations used during races into Discord voice/stage channels. I was provided the opportunity to aid NASCAR in creating this, and adapted their audio stream tech to be able to stream into Discord voice/stage channels via several middleman Discord bots.

The Modcast Podcast was a content moderation & community management education endavour led by me, collaborating with Discord & working with several seasoned content moderators & community managers. The Modcast Podcast generated a total of six episodes during it's run time, with guests including Discord bot developers and prolific Twitch creators. My duties extended to all forms of management & direction of both content and community. This project was also of my own conception.
This consultation was aimed at the community for a content creator. I was brought on to evaluate community statistics and give guidance on how to grow the community. I aided in recommending various changes, including various events & community projects, as well as smaller changes regarding moderation & policy. Changes introduced during this consultation have been well received by the community.
Discord extended the opportunity for community moderators to write articles for the Discord Moderator Academy as of Q4 2020. I used this opportunity to write an article around auto-moderation in Discord, offering a guide and comparison for mainstream auto-moderation bots. This article was then published in the first release of the Discord Moderator Academy.
The Discord Moderator Program is a voluntary program aimed at providing seasoned community managers, content moderators and bot developers to first-party Discord projects and communities onboarded to Discord directly by Discord. This program provides ample opportunities for experience in various afformentioned positions. Many of these opportunities have enabled me to gain contracted work with companies onboarded by Discord.
This consultation is ongoing, with the goal to aid in community management direction & moderation mentorship. I am working with the client to bring more engagement avenues to their community and product, and form a more cohesive bond between the product and their community, and offer moderation mentorship.
Panley Entertainment, as a sole tradership, is the centre for all of my contract & freelance work as well as my various products. Over time it's developed from an intiative targeted at platforming content creators into a personal company for aiding me in centralising all of my work. All projects you see on this site are offered under the umbrella of Panley Entertainment. Running a sole tradership for as long as I have is a very challenging but rewarding experience, and has taught me alot about business & brand management.
