I'm a Marketer by profession, a problem solver by passion and a designer by hobby. I recently completed my undergraduate degree in Communications and Marketing at Minnesota State University, Mankato. In the future, I am interested in working in an environment that pushes me creatively and conceptually but, also allows me to grow as a thinker, innovator and communicator.
