Kevin Lockett is a Social Media Strategist based in Akron, Ohio, where he also host and produces "The Digital Life with Kevin Locket” podcast.
Kevin’s career kicked off in 2008 after seeing a presentation about social media at E.J. Thomas Hall.
“I used to have all these ideas in my head, but I didn’t have the tech savvy skills to flesh them out or live in a big city like New York where my content could be published; but after seeing social media pioneer, David Meerman Scott’s lecture, I learned that there were platforms that would allow me to take my media and marketing thoughts and turn them into reality.”
From that forward, Kevin has worked on various digital projects, starting with Lock 3 Park in 2008, The Summit of Sustainability Awards, United Way’s Project Blueprint, The Global Village Festival and former Akron Mayor Don Plusquellic’s last Mayoral campaign.
After attending workshops at the Akron Digital Media Center, Kevin learned how to effectively shoot and edit video, which led the former DJ to launch his audio podcast “The Digital Life Kevin Lockett” (DigitalKev.com) podcast in 2013, where he has interviewed influencers in social media and pop culture including renowned ballerina Misty Copeland, Time Magazine’s Joel Stein, Cali Lewis from Geek Beat Live and Forbes Magazine’s Zack O’Malley Greenburg.
In 2015, Kevin created “Code Akron" (CodeAkron.com), where he introduces urban youth to technology through coding and business. Also this year, Kevin wrote and published first eBook, So You Think You Know Content Marketing which recently hit #3 on Amazon's Best Sellers in Computers & Technology Short Reads list
A pop culture junkie at heart, it is not unusual for Kevin to watch The Walking Dead, Charlie Rose or General Hospital, while researching his next podcast interview or tweeting frantically during the Emmys, The Oscars, MTV Awards as well as The Tonys, while keeping an eye on the Cavs in the finals. #GoCAVS
