I've been known to push myself to oblivion for whatever team I'm playing for.
I’ve served as a marketing and PR Guy at a motorsports complex, the National Vice President of Public Relations for the Public Relations Student Society of America (PRSSA), Director of Inbound Partnerships at an inbound marketing agency (GuavaBox) and Head of Communications at a SaaS startup (DoInbound).
Currently, I leverage all of those experiences to lead the charge at Top Hat—an award-winning, fully integrated marketing communications firm (IMC) in Pittsburgh, Pa.
In that capacity I've had the true honor and priviledge to work with more brands and industries that can fit on this page (at least without hurting your eyes).
