Work Experience

From non-profit to sales and marketing, and then completely reinventing and heading down an entirely different path through web design and search engine marketing, my work experience has been diverse and educational.

Through it, I’ve worked for and/or with some of the biggest name companies within their respective arenas. What follows, on the pages within this section, is a brief recap, and where applicable, a more visual and interesting view into those experiences than the good old résumé can provide.
