JR Devera

As part of the CRANK Digital Marketing fam for a few years, JR is an important team player who assists with all things social media, blogging, transcription, and more.

When he’s not flexing his social media skills at work, you might find him reading on his Kindle and Kobo, binge-watching YouTube and Netflix, and streaming music on Spotify — all with dog Milo at his side. He also loves spending time with his family — especially his nieces and nephews — and traveling. New York City, Paris, Kyoto, and Bali are some of his favorite travel destinations. Post-pandemic, he wants to visit Central America and South America.
