During my 5 years of working in the marketing and advertising industry I’ve had the privileged to be a part of some amazing companies, and the opportunity to play various challenging roles. With the fundamentals in place, these companies have helped educate and shape me up to the person I am today. So I blame, and thank, the companies below for the experience and skills I have acquired over the years.
