Introduction

Hi! I'm a 2013 graduate of Duke University who studied Psychology, Marketing and Information Sciences. Professionally, I have a strong interest in finding creative solutions to business problems, specifically via advertising. Currently, I work at Ogilvy & Mather Chicago.

I’ve had the opportunity to exercise my creative muscle through internships at various agencies, including Ogilvy & Mather (New York) and Babcock Automotive Advertising (Fairfax, VA), and through my freelance web design work. Click here to check out some of my latest work or here to read more of my résumé.

Personally, I am a technology and design fanatic and a proud early adopter. I love to travel and have a strong interest in exploring new cultures. I spent a semester abroad in Barcelona and have traveled to many other Spanish-speaking countries, where I’ve had the opportunity to develop a working proficiency in the language.
