After graduating I worked for a few different companies, one of which was doing the marketing and advertising for an international trucking company.

Having experience on the other side of the table regarding marketing allows me to look at advertising from your perspective. Advertising has to make sense and positively influence your company’s image and bottom line.

When I am not working I am having fun with my two munchkins. I am married with a 10-year-old girl and an eight-year-old son. To say that life is busy and exciting is an understatement. In my spare time, I enjoy working out, fitness is extremely important to me. I also enjoy coaching my kids in sports and spending playtime with them.

I believe in having fun and working hard, this is something that I teach my kids and this is also how I approach working with clients as a sales representative with CJWW.
