I’m Ahrif and I’m so excited to join Propel as the new Community Manager!

About me - I was born and raised in Chicago, IL and now live in Houston, TX. - My first name is pronounced “Ah-reef” - I’ve co-founded two communities. The more recent one was focused on bringing together local food enthusiasts with public/private events, as well as working with brands to tap into our highly-engaged group. - Community Highlight: My company helped with the chef onboarding, go-to-market strategy, and launch of Uber Eats in Houston! This wild experience culminated with 40,000 new impressions for the app and we put together a super secret dinner to celebrate. 40 of the new app users were given a free Uber X code to arrive at an undisclosed location for a 5-course dinner by James Beard Award winner Chef Hugo Ortega. - What excites me most about joining Propel as Community Manager is that I get to take my local IRL experience and scale it across multiple cities, as well as virtually through our online events
