How did you get started in the business?
I have always been a creative person and loved the idea of creating identities and marketing materials for companies. I enjoy being challenged and work through problems to provide the best possible products for the clients. I went to school for graphic design and later joined the Ebbeka team after an internship.
What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced professionally?
For me it would have to be time management. Being a creative person, I like to spend a lot of time making one design perfect, but it is important to do this in a timely manner so the client receives their product in time.
What has been your most important achievement professionally?
It will always be providing quality work for the clients. This is also rewarding because it allows me to represent the company I work for in a positive light.

My family is really close. Even though we are big we always make time for each other. My fiancée is a huge part of my life and does an amazing job of loving and supporting me.
What is your favorite thing to do on a day off?
My days off consist of playing video games, spending time with family and friends and building my knowledge base in the marketing field.
