Profile – Ed Barraza

Ed Barraza

Assistant Account Executive

A native of Orange County, Ed earned his Bachelor of Arts in Public Relations from the University of Oregon in 2020. Tired of the rain and seemingly endless cloudy days, and facing an uncertain job market, he returned home after graduation.

After some months of tanning and job searching, he landed a job at JS2 as an Assistant Account Executive. He assists with the creation of media lists, collaborates on pitches, and helps identify new opportunities for his clients. His new role combines his passions for finding compelling stories and exploring the diversity behind the LA food scene.

In his free time, you likely can find Ed on the soccer field playing pickup or plopped on the couch adding to his pile of finished books. He also loves spending time catching up with his far-away friends and laughing ‘till it hurts.

Ed’s Last Meal

“My dad’s birria (find me a better one on the West Coast, I dare you) followed by my mom’s capirotada which is just… *chef’s kiss*”
