How did I end up here?


During my undergraduate studies at the University of South Dakota, I changed my major roughly 8 times (I tried everything from engineering to political science). Eventually, an experimental PR class led me to advertising. After graduation, advertising led me to Minneapolis where I spent almost 3 years working in the account department of various agencies. I was always curious about strategy, so when my quarter-life crisis hit I decided it was time to make the transition. 

After a year of trying to figure out how to become a strategist, I was accepted to the VCU Brandcenter. 

 

Pre-Brandcenter:


Worked at a few agencies:

Account + Project Manager, Assistant Account Executive, & Intern

Accounts I worked on:

3M Brands [Duct Tape, ocelo, ACE, Scotch Brite], Minnesota Timberwolves, Ryder Cup, Canterbury Park, University of Minnesota

Service industry vet:

11+ years working in the restaurant industry

One of the beauties of a small agency: making a cameo in the commercials you help produce.

 
 

Other strengths:


Former Amateur "Comedian": 

In undergrad I was in a sketch comedy group - Strollers. Here's a video. This joke won't make sense, but it was the only semi-appropriate clip I could find. 

Dog Encyclopedia:

I watched a lot of Animal Planet growing up. I can identify and characterize about ~90% of dog breeds. 

Clap On Clap Off:

I'm an exceptionally loud, crisp clapper.
