Why did you pick Mad Fish?

The small agency culture, the recommendation of former colleagues… Plus, it’s located close to home and I have the ability to learn new aspects of PPC and overall marketing and improve current skills. 

Favorite genre of music to work to/link to your favorite Spotify playlist to listen to at work?

Usually I listen to podcasts, but when I do listen to music it’s normally deep house. Started off as a joke but now I really like it. I’ve been listening to this guy a lot lately. 

Fun fact about yourself.  

I have never had a real illness (flu, strep throat, chicken pox, etc) other than a cold or broken a bone *knock on wood*

What do you add to the team outside of work?

I’ve been told I’m “a great hang” and am a decent cook. My guacamole and different meatballs have gotten the best response.
