I am a young man from the Washington, DC Metropolitan area with a new found talent and passion for advertising and marketing/promotions. I am enrolled at the Art Institute of Washington and currently hold a 3.5 GPA. Recently I’ve worked as a brand ambassador/event staffer for several national organizations including Kellogg’s Frosted Flakes and NCAA Tournament (Sponsored by CBS, TBS, TNT, TruTV). I presently hold the position of Production Assistant with Tona Michelle Cosmetics, a local beauty brand which launch the first quarter of 2011. In this position I have wrote press release's which were used for national distribution, created marketing material and flyers, booked interviews with television stations and blogs as well as assisted on television commercial tapings and photo shoot sets. In August of 2010 I completed an internship at Diesel, Manhattan, NYC where I assisted and supported the Public Relations team in all daily functions under the direction of PR Coordinator, Mr. Nathaniel Hinton. I also have a professional background as well that has spanned several years which includes a government clearance. I am currently in search of a career change in a field that I find both professionally and individually rewarding. I am proficient in nearly all Microsoft Office applications. Currently I am seeking hands on work experience and I would like to gain knowledge of the advertising/PR industry.
