My Story

I'm a passionate individual driven to help businesses and colleagues achieve goals and grow by constantly learning. I am a highly teachable individual with internal initiative for self-teaching, problem solving and integrating solutions. The majority of my professional knowledge is self-taught or learned by experience.

My areas of experience include digital marketing, advertising, content management, project management, social media strategy and advertising, branding, reputation management, marketing & CRM solutions, video production, photography, graphic design for web and print, email marketing, data entry, system testing, customer service, retail sales, issue tracking, business QA, and reporting and analytics.

I am strong believer in teamwork and team-building, as well as having plenty of constructive communication in the workplace. I enjoy working in Agile environments like Kanban but have also worked on traditional Waterfall projects. I love opportunities to help others develop and improve their skills as well as taking advantage of opportunities to expand my own knowledge and abilities. And although I believe teamwork is crucial, I also greatly enjoy working autonomously. I strongly believe in ethical work and work ethic. I love exploring possibilities and discovering new solutions to help achieve company and personal goals.

I graduated from University of Memphis in 2011 with a B.A. in Communications/Film and Video Production. My wife and I also run a small network of Japanese Tutoring Classes in the Spring and Fall semesters for Japanese Language and Cultural Education for students and adults.
