Sandro Galindo has been a digital marketer for over a decade, ever since he was named one of WKYC’s 10 Most Interesting NE Ohio Twitter Accounts in 2008 (although he’s pretty sure his mom stuffed the ballot). He specializes in search engine marketing, both organic and paid. In addition to his day job, he enjoys being involved in unique events. He has co-created three including, a county-wide soup contest, Souper Bowl CLE, a nacho & margarita competition called NachoRita Fest, and an “underground restaurant.” Each raised thousands for local nonprofits. He also volunteers annually in Tim Tebow’s Night to Shine and the Mac n Cheese Festival. He has also been a mentor to one 4th grader at Joseph Gallagher every year for the past five years and teaches children of all ages on behalf of Junior Achievement.

He was a Toastmaster for over a decade and served as a club President & Vice-President and has spoken at various marketing and story-telling events. He also co-hosted a digital marketing podcast for over four years. Sandro has been a fan of theatre since the 6th grade when he played Aaron, Moses’ brother in a school play. He also worked backstage for a couple of productions at his alma mater Baldwin Wallace, but since then has remained an enthusiastic supporter of the arts from a seat in the audience.
