PROFILE

A professional leader with ambitious goals to bring storytelling to the forefront of advertising. A perfectionist who has experience in communications and digital marketing. A driven individual who constantly strives to represent marginalized groups and make a positive social impact through creative and innovative visuals... but also an adult who thinks about memes a lot and still gets sad over how Vine died. Yup... that's me. Here's basically a copy of my resume because I don't know how to upload it on this site without you thinking that you lost your vision.
