Senior Project Manager
Born and raised on the east coast, I am a devoted family member, four season loving, cat cuddling, lakeside chillin’, “Mainer” at heart that’s obsessed with advertising and marketing.
My fascination with advertising began with the Absolute ad campaign. I was so inspired with the creativity of the campaign that I started a scrapbook of my favorite print ads. When I was 16 years old, I was asked in a pageant what I wanted to do for a career and answered “”Advertising,”" but the interviewer heard “”Appetizing.”" It was hysterical really, because I actually do have a large appetite and a love for food, but I was meant what I said – I wanted to work in advertising.
After earning my Bachelor of Science Degree in Marketing with a focus in Advertising at Quinnipiac University in Hamden, CT, I made my way to Los Angeles. I never expected to even visit Los Angeles never mind live there. I was set on working in either Boston or New York, but there was one thing that had the power to move me across the country – love.
Still determined to give the ‘big bad world of advertising’ a run, I was hired to work at a traditional ad agency where I learned all about serving the client, meeting deadlines, time-management and branding campaigns. It was great experience but I quickly realized the future of our industry was in the digital realm. As much as I appreciate, print, television and radio advertising, I knew that the Internet was becoming the primary method of communication on our planet and I wanted to be a part of it. As a result, I made the decision to change my career path and I haven’t looked back since.
