1. Where is your hometown
2. What brought you to San Diego?
I moved to San Diego to go to school at San Diego State University to study Business Marketing
3. What made you join Ad 2 San Diego?
I first joined Ad2 because I needed speakers to speak at the SDSU advertising club. However,I continued my membership because I love the people. Advertising people are straight up AWESOME!
4. What has been your favorite part as an Ad 2 San Diego Board Member?
Just going to the meetings and hanging out with some of the more experienced people in the advertising industry has helped me get ready for the real world. Talking with people like Gary Ware and Stephanie Garcia has taught me that a job does not have to be a 9 to 5 pain in the neck but 8 hours of fun that you get paid for.
5. This weather has been heating up! What’s your plan for the summer?
Yep, it is getting hot. So the logical thing for me to do was to find a job where I needed to wear a suit all day. Even though I love working at Northwestern Mutual as a financial representative I try to make up for it by going to the beach and kicking it in my speedo as much as I can (Just Kidding). I also try to hang out and talk to as many advertising people as possible because they have some of the kindest hearts around and always willing to help a young guy like myself move from college into the real world.
