As an ENTP personality, I can't help but to be intrigued by the unknown. My love of reading is perpetuated in how I approach and solve problems, as well as the way I communicate new ideas. If I can't find the answer, I work hard to figure it out and take pleasure in the process of researching and obtaining new information. I seek out new adventures every day and this time in my life not only allows that trait to expand, but flourish. I believe that working with a team that brings a joint array of backgrounds will always produce the best ideas. From this mentality, I've gained experience in strategic planning, media relations, web design, copywriting and leadership within a variety of industries. Check out my portfolio for the results. Reach out for a brainstorm, and let's see how we can work together.
