nice to meet you
Thanks for checking out my site. For a little background on me, I’m currently an Associate Project Manager at a New York Advertising agency working in digital marketing for pharmaceuticals. I’m a 2020 graduate of Elon University with majors in History and Strategic Communications and a minor in Dance. Before that I was an intern at Carolina Ballet in the Marketing Department, a jack of all trades (but mostly social media writer and manager) for Elon’s History & Geography Department, and a semester exchange student at the University of St Andrews in Scotland in the fall of 2018 (that was my favorite).
My parents have directed sports and news for TV all my life, so I was raised to be a lover of journalism in all forms. I’m a massive Warriors fan, newly very into my fantasy football team (the Roring Riptides) and have long admired writers of both fact and fiction. My favorite literary works include “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance” by Robert Pirsig, “The Namesake” by Jhumpa Lahiri, and “A Walk in The Woods” by Bill Bryson. Growing up, weekends were spent traveling from city to city to sit in the Broadcast Truck with my dad, or sitting on the subway completing the NY Times crossword with my mom. I’m not sure my joyful childhood is really relevant to my professional development and career, but it fostered a vibrant imagination and a love for learning in any way I could. I think that’s pretty important.
As you may see by now, I’m an Oxford comma user. Just a heads up that this is basically non-negotiable.
If you bothered to read all of this – thanks! I enjoyed writing it. I hope to one day hear your favorite part 🙂
