Through every personal and professional endeavor, I have always sought to positively impact our changing culture through exposure to art, creativity, and stories of the road less traveled.
Following the Beat: Navigating Music Business - Between the grit and grace of Athens, Georgia and the hustle and bustle of New York City, I found outlets big and small to use what I was learning at UGA to bring the creative soul of artists I loved to the surface through social media campaigns and digital marketing.
Taking the Leap: Making Plan B, Plan A - Knowing long-term travel would undoubtedly be a chapter in the future, I took the opportunity shortly after graduation to backpack independently before settling into my career. With a one-way ticket to Hong Kong in January 2017, I solo-hopped through 17 countries crossing the highest highs (the Himalayas) and lowest lows (WWII shipwreck diving) off my bucket list. The greatest outcome however was the impact my journey made on others, as my passion to tell authentic stories on the road allowed those at home to feel empowered to take a leap of their own.
Finding Community: Collaboration in Bali - To pivot my skills and broaden my professional experience, I assisted an Indonesian non-profit as they navigated a complete brand overhaul. I rediscovered my love for language and writing, and joined the Bali coworking community to learn everything I could from the most creative people on earth. These experiences in an entrepreneurial atmosphere and learning to ask “Why Not?”, have fueled my future professional aspirations.
Planting roots: Always Room to Grow - Following my experiences stateside and abroad, I begin every day as a blank slate and end every day with gratitude. Shortly after returning home, I dove head-first to gain valuable experience through a new medium, coordinating event marketing a social media for Hamptons Magazine in my hometown of Southampton. Jumping between editorial, digital, and event departments on a daily basis, I quickly have learned the ins and outs of multi-tasking and juggling between priorities, and experience first hand how collaboration brings incredible projects and events to life.
