Get to know me. 

I thrive in collaborative settings, but also have the drive and initiative to take on individual projects. I love trying out new creative concepts and trends, while also understanding the importance of anchoring communications to one's strategy. I use metrics to measure success and drive improvement. I also appreciate a good meme.
