Did you have any cool internships while in school?
“I actually had two internships. The first was for marketing with Majestic Athletic, they make major league baseball uniforms. I was able to assist with operations, promotions, and apparel for the all-star game in 2009 where I got to meet Andrew Jones of the Baltimore Orioles when I handed him his jersey! The second was with Consolidated Green Services where I handled social media and marketing.”
Since working here at BBC what was the best piece of advice that someone gave you?

What is it that you like best about what you do here at BBC?
“The people in the company and the relationships that you form here. Some of my best friends that I hang out with on the weekends are from here in the office.

If I were to go out to your car right now what would be your most played songs on your Ipod?
