Rashidi Barnett’s passion for the tech world was sparked at just nine years old, when he helped build his family’s first computer. A few years later, before it was cool, Rashidi got the AOL floppy disk in the mail, begged his dad for the credit card and installed it on his PC. He was surfing the net and making friends around the globe until 3 a.m.
These days, Rashidi is the director of emerging opportunities at Nebo. This is his second time working for the Atlanta-based agency, where he builds relationships with marketers and helps potential and current clients think about what is six months, 12 months, two years down the road. That can vary from marketing strategies to helping clients think through a screenless world.
Rashidi started his digital marketing career as the online marketing manager at Earthlink, where he was responsible for creative development, online media initiatives and search engine marketing. He then left to work at Nebo (for the first time), where he helped build award-winning creative. During his first tenure at Nebo, he held the role of director of strategy, leading the search marketing teams in building SEO and paid search strategies.

Damon has lived in Atlanta since 2000, and during his frequent solo travel, has become a master of the self-taken photo before digital cameras existed. When he's not working on project plans and feverishly responding to client requests, he can be found at the park with his son and daughter, obsessing over some random show on Netflix or trying to convince people that not everyone who lives in the Atlanta suburbs is a loser.

A cat mom, news junkie and certified bagel aficionado, Rachel brings a savory vibe to the Nebo team as Director of Content.

That over-a-decade-long journey has powered through website overhauls, mobile apps, social media, in-store and conversational experiences, even some VR/AR — and landed her in the sunny ATL. But her engine's fueled for the long haul... and she’s tracking toward what’s next.
