“When I’m not working I like to be outside hiking, kayaking, etc….to me the combination is the best of the SoCal lifestyle…marketing as a profession and being out in nature most of the rest of the time.

I enjoy all aspects of marketing: I have blogged on the side, self-published a sports book, worked for a digital marketing agency, marketed for a not for profit, and currently lead all of the marketing efforts for two divisions of a technology company.”

“I am the Vice President of Membership – Young Professionals which is exciting to me because there is so much enthusiasm from young and soon to be marketers! I work with college students (both undergrad and graduate level) pursuing a career in the field as well as those that are in the early stages of their career. I remember the experience of being where they are like it was yesterday. They are sorting through so many different ways to approach their careers and are looking for an edge.

My goal is to help them to see how the professional chapter can help them in this journey. LA is such a dynamic market for marketers and other creative professionals to be in which means that they have a lot of opportunities and also challenges to consider. AMA Los Angeles through our educational events, networking events, and career resources (both directly from us and from the national organization) has a lot to offer those about to enter or that have already begun their journey within our great profession.
