Well hello there! Enjoy the background image of a lost roll of film from my 1968 Canon FTB! As evident, I'm passionate about antique camera photography & my career in digital marketing. One may even say they're the bread to my butter, the cheese to my macaroni. Here's how it all started...

I started my professional career at National Geographic in Washington, D.C., and after a series of failed attempts at college chemistry, realized human behavior is more my forte than studying animal behavior. I graduated from Florida Tech as a program manager for young adults with Asperger's after getting my degree in behavior analysis. Oddly, that translated into being really good at changing behaviors in the digital space as well.

While living in Satellite Beach, FL, I accepted a position leading social customer service on Facebook for Ford Motor Company. After a year with Ford I set my sights on south Florida where I succeeded in building out a world-class digital team for two TV shows on Lifetime TV. After speaking at a few conferences about social media and broadcast television my fellow strategy friends at Ants Eye View were interested in bringing me aboard their team in Chicago.

After almost a year at PriceWaterhouse Coopers (Ant's Eye View acquisition), I made the transition to an analyst role on the Global Accounts team at LinkedIn. While it took a few tries to find my perfect fit at an agency, I'm currently in love with the work I'm able to do for our clients at Burson-Marsteller.
