Life's a beach.
Prior to self-employment, I served as marketing manager for Claus Ettensberger Corporation. At the time, CEC imported and distributed 8 European aftermarket automotive brands. Stretching a budget, juggling diverse projects and wearing many hats were great preparation for today's role as a trusted partner to several small businesses. Other valuable experiences come from years in retail management and store merchandising with retail giant Lady Foot Locker and project management and content creation with web developer Enthusiasts, Inc.
Born in Brooklyn, NY and raised on Long Island, I received a BS in Marketing from SUNY Plattsburgh. In my sophomore year, I spent a semester in Liverpool England - then, backpacked through Europe. There, I fell hard for espresso and travel.
I live and work in Redondo Beach, California - just a few blocks from the Pacific. It's awesome.
For fun, I make jewelry with silversmithing skills I learned on a week long intensive "vocation vacation" in Seattle. I dabble in a bit of painting and I am cultivating my photog skills. Sadly, I own a ukulele gathering dust that I will one day play!
