Please help us welcome Markell Allen to the CWEA Team as our new Media & Marketing Manager! Markell will be focusing on the digital marketing strategy and expanding the presence of CWEA across all of our digital mediums.
Originally from Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, Markell found his passion for Color Guard at a young age and has since grown to be an avid participant in the activity. Marching an array of groups including Carolina Crown, Boston Crusaders, Etude Winter Guard and Pride of Cincinnati, his experiences have allowed him the chance to learn and grow as a performer and educator in the artform. As an educator, Allen has had the opportunity of teaching a multitude of groups, including several high schools across South Carolina & Indiana, Palmetto Independent Winter Guard and Legends Drum & Bugle Corps.
Allen recently graduated from the University of South Carolina with a degree in Graphic Design. He hopes his talents will help push the digital identity of the Carolina Winter Ensemble Association to new heights and create opportunities for more interpersonal interactions within the circuit. Currently, he is a co-director of the River Bluff High School Guards, standing Guard Designer for Legends Drum & Bugle Corps and consults with programs on design and choreography throughout the Midwest and East Coast.
