After growing up in the area, I have recently relocated to the triangle to put my roots down. I grew up a fan of NC State, but got accepted for a transfer to UNC-CH during my time at community college. I sold out and took the education (which in hindsight was probably a good move). Upon graduating from Chapel Hill, I stuck around in the area for another year before relocating to the mountains of North Carolina (Asheville area). That’s where I had been for the past 5 years, and how I initially got into the promotions industry. While in Asheville, I started to garner experience in logistics and enjoyed the day to day challenges it brought. Fast forward a couple of years and I was given the opportunity to learn the ropes of the promotions industry and quickly fell in love with the nature of this business. My favorite aspect is easily client relations as I get to assist my customers from the beginning stages, to receiving the perfect, tangible promotional products they were once only imagining.
In my spare time, I’m often spending time with the small family I have in the states. Outside of that, you can find me tinkering with my fantasy football lineup, working out, catching up with friends over a craft beer, or getting lost in the fallout universe.
