I went to Northeastern University to study criminal justice and after graduation decided to pursue a career in the music industry. Fortunate to have found Mass Appeal Entertainment, I spent the following 4 years as the GM where I was involved in various aspects of the music business including publicity, promotion, advertising, marketing, radio, television, and most importantly, the internet.
My passion for music and the web brought me to Berklee where I worked for almost three years as a product and marketing manager – helping to launch this amazing Network. Now I work at Staples overseeing their New Media Programs – focusing on Facebook and Youtube.
In my free time I work on freelance projects to provide assistance, research, guidance, and/or implementation of various marketing and new media strategies to companies in various industries. Of course, I can also be found spending time with family, training my puppy, and planning my wedding.
