Favorite Spot in Tampa: There are a lot of cool spots in Tampa Bay, but I spend most of my time in Ybor City. During the day, it’s a great community of creative small businesses and history; during the night, it’s perfect for drinks and entertainment.
Favorite Industry Blog/Site: SocialFresh.com — This is my #1 source for the latest and greatest in Digital + Social. There are other more comprehensive news sites, but these guys have a great niche and are timely, super relevant and provide tons of in-depth how-to’s.
Favorite Ad 2 Event/Memory: Competing in and winning the National Public Service Competition last year! Not only was directing the campaign with Danielle Torres an extremely rewarding experience, but the competition itself was a whole new growing experience. Meeting the other Ad 2 chapters was also an eye-opening experience — there are a ton of awesome, talented people out there that I’m honored to be associated with!
Worst Job Horror Story: Luckily, I don’t really have one. I’ve been extremely lucky to have worked for Social Forces right out of college. Even the “worst” days are still pretty awesome!
Other Organizations/Affiliations: Previously USF Ad Club (Social Media Chair; President)
