As an electrical engineer turned digital marketer, I consider myself blessed to be both left and right brained! Originally from Northwest Indiana being rooted in strong family values, I currently reside on the Northwest Suburbs of Chicago. I graduated from Valparaiso University with a degree in Digital Marketing & Communications with Electrical Engineering and have pursued various other certifications and diplomas in Social Media Marketing, Business Development & Entrepreneurship, Digital Marketing Analytics & Strategies, and so on.
I am a Twitter aficionado, livestream producer, podcaster, show host, interviewer, emcee, moderator, motivational speaker, contributing writer, non-stop thinker who is always full of ideas, former actor (play), poet, video editor, novice beatboxer, loves documentaries, and I have a natural ability for finding amazing movies and cooking (or so I have been told by my wife).
