I am finishing up my last semester as a marketing undergrad while interning at the Golf Channel. I love being part of the NBCUniversal family and am hoping to continue my professional career with a progressive organization upon graduation. I enjoy working in a diverse, high energy team environment and feel that one of my biggest strengths is the ability to communicate and coordinate with other individuals to accomplish organizational initiatives and goals. I believe that my former positions at MySpace UK Ltd., CBS Radio and the Golf Channel have helped me to foster this skill. 

My marketing experience comes from the entertainment and media industries, more specifically from the digital and social media realms both domestically and internationally. I specialize in monitoring the sociall environment for trends, opportunities and shifts.

If you would like to know more about my future goals, I have attached a Ten Year Plan which outlines future career aspirations. 

Currently I am living between Los Angeles, California and Orlando, Florida but will be based solely in Los Angeles in a few months time. 

Please feel free to contact or network with me. I look forward to meeting you!
