How’d you get to where you are today, working at 435 Digital?

After graduating from Indiana University with a degree in TV production, I landed my first job at the Oprah show. After doing production for my first year out of school, I wanted to test out the sales world.  My first four years in media sales were in TV and radio. I realized very quickly that a lot of the clients I was working with were shifting to the digital world, so I did the same. I spent the next five years selling and managing at a large digital media company in Chicago. I’m extremely excited to work at 435 Digital for such a big brand in Chicago and continue to watch the digital world grow!

What is your favorite YouTube video?

Best salesman ever!  I love watching this video. Everybody that has ever done sales should watch, learn, and be entertained.

Who is your favorite person to follow on Twitter and why?

I have two favorites on Twitter.  I love to be kept up to date on sports and the digital media world so my favorites are @sportscenter and @sengineland.

What is your favorite thing about Chicago?

My favorite thing about Chicago is a combination of the Cubs and the food. I’ve lived in Chicago my entire life and am a diehard Cubs fan, which is sometimes hard. I love going to Wrigley Field. I also love deep dish pizza!
