about the irl media team
It’s time to get to know our
Christie Freer, Founder
For as long as I can remember, I loved creating cool stuff. I always knew I wanted to turn my obsession with capturing content & creating memories into my full-time job. After getting my Bachelor’s Degree in Marketing & Master’s Degree in Business Management, I headed to the big apple to work in Marketing - truly a dream come true.
IRL MEDIA 👩🏻💻
I spent 5+ years in various different industries working in Digital Marketing & Client Experience. I come from a big family of small business owners and I was taught to hustle since I was a kid. While working full-time, I started free-lancing in social media and quickly realized working with brands to develop content sparked a fire in me that corporate america could never match.
I worked tirelessly to build my list of clients & expand my skills in every social platform. Fast-forward to today, here I am - the owner of my own growing social media agency (crying in the club just typing this). My goal is to help every brand I work with break through the clutter. Social media is an evolving space & let’s be real - finally a space that’s getting the respect it deserves. When you have a strategic and unique strategy that's custom tailored for YOU, powerful things happen.
My favorite part about what I do
is connecting with people. We keep it professional, but we truly treat all our clients just like a best friend.
When I’m not trolling TikTok and IG Reels for the latest trends,
you can find me spending time with my family, overspending on a new outfit & indulging in chicken nuggets or pasta on the weekends 😉
Let us make creating content FUN again.
Isabelle Hanke, Director, Social Media Content 🎥
I’ve always been drawn to creative work but only recently was able to turn it into my full-time job, I feel like I’m on cloud 9 ☁️. I love the entire creative process from concepting ideas, to filming, to editing, to sharing my work with others. What started out as having fun on TikTok quickly turned into a passion for capturing video content.
A fun fact about me is I was born in Sweden. Growing up in Europe has given me a deep love for travel and exploring new places and cultures. I saved up and bought my first DSLR camera in middle school and have loved photography ever since. Back in the day I would post content on my blog. Flash forward to today, I’m still posting content but now it’s through social media and it’s become my actual job, I can’t believe it!
There’s a sense of community with social media that can be so special. I love connecting with other people through creative content – it makes you realize we really are more similar than we are different. My favorite part about working with our clients is really getting to know each individual brand, what makes them special and how we can help share that through our work.
