Avail­able ASAP.


I’m look­ing for
a warm com­pa­ny cul­ture, a place with­out a ceil­ing, and a team of inter­est­ing pros I can be a proud part of and with whom I can grow.

I grad­u­at­ed from
James Madi­son Uni­ver­si­ty with a Bachelor’s in Eng­lish, cum laude.

Jobs I’ve tried but am not very good at
car­pen­ter, land­scap­er, pool shark, retail­er of bespoke men’s suits, roofer, grave­yard-shift stockboy.

Things I am good to keep around for
book rec­om­men­da­tions, okay con­ver­sa­tion, com­mu­ni­ca­tion en español (advanced/low), cross-indus­try cus­tomer-ser­vice expe­ri­ence, unim­peach­able orga­ni­za­tion­al skills, team man­age­ment and lead­er­ship, web design (CSS, Word­Press), writ­ing and editing.

Ref­er­ences avail­able upon request.
