Passionate about writing, public relations, and marketing he is currently interning for Arc 3 Communications as a Social Media Marketing Intern. Prior to attending Kennesaw State University, Paul attended the Art Institute of Atlanta where he studied graphic design, drawing and animation.
One of Paul’s proudest moments in his marketing career was having the opportunity to team up with Sober Living America, a non-profit organization that helps provide information, support, and recovery options for people struggling with addiction. Paul created a media kit and marketing plan to raise addiction awareness among college students at Kennesaw State University. This included an on-campus event for the non-profit which raised awareness in the media and online about the growing addiction epidemic among students and millennials and how to combat it.
In his spare time, Paul is an avid film, video game, and book geek. He also has a passion for music and enjoys rocking out on the guitar, playing alternative music. His passion for writing goes beyond the communications realm as he writes poetry and short fiction on the side. He and his wife, Trish, an elementary school teacher for the Cobb County School District reside in Kennesaw with their dog Malcolm. They also enjoy traveling and spending time outdoors hiking or just taking in the beauty of nature.
“I am grateful for the opportunity to practice the marketing skills that I learned in school in a small agency environment where I can work with different clients on diverse accounts,” McNally said. “I think being a Social Media Marketing Intern at Arc 3 is a great opportunity for me to do that right in the heart of downtown Marietta.”
