Wizard of Whippersnappers


I am originally from the south suburbs of Chicago and attended Grand Valley State University, located in Grand Rapids, Michigan, for my undergrad. For some reason when I went to college I thought it was a good idea to go from an already snowy place to an even snowier place, so Atlanta has been a nice relief from that. At Grand Valley State University I double majored in marketing and management, played as many intramural sports as I could and was even the President of our collegiate American Marketing Association chapter.

Friendly Human has been more than a great excuse to get out of the cold weather, but it has been the start of a new life for me. Everyone at Friendly Human is so similar in that everyone is brilliant at what they do, yet we are so unique that I feel like I learn more in a day at the office than I did in college. I have always had an interest in photography, so being able to combine that interest with work is a dream come true.
