What’s your role at USDP?
Digital Advertising Analyst
What’s your background?
I studied marketing at UC, from there took a job in financial sales/service at Fidelity and worked there for nearly four years before coming to USDP.
Why did you want to work with USDP?
I liked what I saw from the website about what USDP does, and was looking to use my marketing degree in some way. I also have always wanted a job where I can be creative and have the freedom to make decisions while also having a broad, noticeable impact through my work. So helping people with their digital advertising and (hopefully) seeing their sales and market share increase is very rewarding for me.
What are your interests/activities outside of work?
I love to be outside, whether it be playing sports, being on the water, hiking, or just relaxing. I also love to cook, bake, and try new food and drinks. Finally, I am a huge sports fan and will watch just about anything you put in front of me, especially football.
What are you known for at work? What’s your MO?
Being fun and easy to work with, promoting a fun culture. I also like to think I am reliable and consistent with my work and work ethic.
What would your autobiography be called?
“Ope, Sorry! A Midwestern Boy’s Awkward Dance Through Life”
Would you rather fight one horse-sized duck, or a hundred duck-sized horses? Why?
The horse-sized duck. 400 tiny hooves and 100 tiny mouths would be very hard to defend, plus after I beat the duck-horse, I would have a reliable companion to ride/float around on.
