I help develop stories for people & businesses in mediums that they may not understand, but are vital to their success - as well as build the foundations for effective marketing.
Feb 2005 - Mar 2011
The Saloon LLC
As a bar manager at The Saloon, I was responsible for large sums of money and responsible for opening and closing the establishment. I also was responsible for all print work including menus/posters/ flyers and month to month promotions. I handled all online communication with customers as well as took initiative in new ways of marketing this business through social media. I created a database of information on our customers that would then be used to carry out certain promotions.
2010 - 2010
Sales Representative/Marketing Communications Specialist
I was a sales representative for a company called Stevenson Products. I joined the company when their main product Mini Chill gained distribution in the New York and New Jersey areas. I was in charge of getting sales reps from Distribution companies familiar with the product and taught them how to properly sell it.
During this time we implemented a number of marketing strategies and held events to promote the product in new areas where we didn't yet have distribution. This required me to actually sell it to store owners and monitor sales in each of these locations.

Bachelor of Business Administration
I am a highly personable, energetic, creative, motivated and results-driven professional with a can-do attitude. I have excellent communication, organizational, and follow-up skills. I work well with colleagues and peers. I also takes charge of responsibilities and makes sure the job gets done well. I am also very interested in social media and understanding the spectrum as a whole which makes me qualified for any position with that as a primary focus.
My objective it to be a part of a team of highly motivated people that share an interest in making a difference. I also look to fulfill my desire to perform work that exercises my creativity and do work that matters. I am a firm believer in sharing ideas and doing what I believe in. I look to take a leading role in an organization because I believe in my ability to bring out the best in those around me.
I enjoy finding out why people do what they do. I don't just ask what people do because that doesn't tell me much. Sure someone may be a banker, but does that make them who they are? I don't believe it does.
I also really enjoy reading, writing on Squidoo.com, taking pictures, taking video, editing video (not really), telling jokes, laughing with people, talking to people on line at the grocery store, being put on the spot, getting my gas pumped for me, having a clean car, going to comedy shows, talking to people online who I've never met but share similar interests, and learning about new trends, joining different social networks and most of all learning about other people. There is so much that really does interest me, but I find that sharing these interests with those we spend our time with is a much better experience than just telling someone. Although I do really enjoy talking.
