As a student of economics, one of the first things I learned was that economics doesn't teach you what to think, it teaches you how to think - critically. My education has prepared me for success in every endeavor I've undertaken in life.
I am currently a Strategist & Writer at CoreElement, an industrial marketing firm in Cleveland, OH (Core-El.com) and Marketing Manager at Gigfinity.com, a Cleveland-area social commerce site. Prior to my current position, I was an M&A Analyst for Western Reserve Partners in Cleveland, Ohio, after my promotion from Marketing Specialist. I am currently looking to progress my career in marketing, as well as advance myself as a writer.

I have written over 50 editorials for the Independent Collegian, and a dozen more for the Daily Kent Stater, with an established track record of producing entertaining and quality content on time.

In addition, my work includes periodic newsletters for Western Reserve, along with other ad-hoc marketing pieces, email blasts, press releases and presentations given at regional and national conferences.

Also, I always keep my inner economist with me. I am a strong critical thinker, researcher, data collector and analyst. I know how to discern sources, form thoughtful opinions, and present findings in the appropriate manner depending on the target audience.
