Words have always come to me with ease. I vividly remember the first time I thought of an idea for an advertising campaign. In the 7th grade, I found myself looking around the classroom in my boredom. I remember thinking to myself that candy would make the class more interesting. I began imagining ways to advertise to children sneaky ways to take candy to school and slyly eat the candy in class. Specifically I created my first copy in the form of slogan in my head for Smarties. From that moment on, I knew I wanted to work in advertising. Constantly critiquing advertisements and mentally visualizing some ideas for advertisements of my own, I was a natural born advertiser.

Advertising is my passion. Now let me tell you a little about myself. Traveling is my hobby. I’ve been to 13 different countries, lived in Florence, Italy for a month and London, England for 6 months. Utilizing this worldly experience, I’ve interned in advertising agencies in San Diego, London, Los Angeles, and Boston. Making for a well rounded experience to build on, I anxiously anticipate my next opportunity in advertising. My career goal is to become a successful copywriter but more importantly my life goal is to one day be on Saturday Night Live.
