In a digital world I still believe in the importance of crafting a relationship with individuals. Whether that's digitally or in person, if you can connect with someone's emotions then you'll leave a lasting impression on them.
I pride myself in having a robust work ethic, no task is too small, and no task is too large. I look at every detail of a project and analyze how it can be done smarter and not harder to inform better decision-making. In a fast moving world, efficiency is key to accomplishing tasks with a tight turnaround and budget.
I strive to provide individuals with the best possible experience they can have because if you can infect a positive experience, chances are you will have created a new brand advocate for your company, event, or product. I've helped regional, national, and global brands expand and bolster their customer experience, resulting in repeat digital and physical visitation (sales increases) as well as a higher level of brand loyalty.
