Career History

Originally planning to become an asset in the newspaper industry’s digital transformation, I ventured out from a career in multimedia journalism in 2009.

Since then I have partnered with small businesses and non-profit organizations to provide affordable multimedia solutions to market and promote their goods and services. Here is a little background information on my career and education.
