As an immigrant growing up in Brooklyn, I dreamed about Wall Street. I got my first shot junior year of high school and landed an internship on the trading floor of a Wall Street firm. After 3 months, I declined a full-time offer and applied for art school.

15 years later, after putting myself through college at School of Visual Arts and worked at two major ad firms, I was hired by the same Wall Street firm as a Creative Consultant. Looking back, I feel so lucky to have had that internship experience to help guide my career path at a young age.

Today, I am responsible for leading McCann Worldgroup's production operations as Managing Director, North America, at Craft and Co-Founder/COO of CreativeInterns.com
