I am a lover of learning, a marketing enthusiast and a proficient writer and communicator.
I write topical articles for and about Generation Y – my generation. My personal short essays have been featured on various blogs, including, 20-nothings and East Coast By Choice. I’ve also completed various assignments for the online magazine TNGG including a series that I concepted and created on the 2011 film “Life in a Day”.
I have worked with businesses, small and large, to solve problems. Sometimes it’s operations, other times it’s evaluating marketing strategies but, it’s always about making effective changes that drive better business operations.
I’ve managed a variety of retail, gaming, and real estate accounts and advised clients on marketing practices for their businesses. I’m a shrewd spreadsheet manager so that budgets are kept in-line and delivery is on time.
