I love to see people actualize their dreams so anything that could align to teaching/helping/growing.

Why did you pick Mad Fish?

Mad Fish felt like a great place to really grow my career, get re-invested in the digital space and continue figuring out how to align my passions/morals with my career.

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

If it’s not a podcast, it’s some kind of early 2000’s rap/hip-hop/pop.

Fun fact about yourself.

I went to college in three different countries

Show us a picture of your pet if you have one.

What do you add to the team outside of work?

I hope I can just bring a good attitude and positivity. And I’ll let everyone know when mercury is out of retrograde.
