Obtain a position that will enable me to develop creative concepts that will help organizations achieve greater brand awareness and recognition locally and globally.


I grew up in Rochester Hills, Michigan after moving from Cleveland, Ohio. In 2009, I moved to Chicago to obtain my Masters of Arts in Public Relations and Advertising which I completed in June 2011.

Coming from a family of engineers I obsorbed a strong passion for design and creation. From graphic elements to designing life size experiential events I have built a love for creating elements that really provide both parties with a senseof satisfacation.  

When I am not working I find my inspiration from my life experiences, dreams and asperations. Traveling is a sole part of who I am and it has helped me gain an understanding of the world which has enabled me to develop innovative and creative concepts.
