I got a business degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where I majored in marketing in December 2006. Then I worked at the job site Monster for three years doing online marketing. Then I worked at a website called ForSaleByOwner for a year where I managed a $1.5 million adwords budget and did online marketing.

Then I joined a 3 person start up website called ParkWhiz where I managed all their online marketing and helped them grow from 3 employees to 23 employees in 2 years.

Then I took a job at a big digital advertising agency called Resolution Media where I managed a team of digital marketers.
