For the last five years, I have worked to help grow businesses in just about every niche with PPC advertising and copywriting. My favorite projects have been those involving my personal passions for music and art, such as my coverage for Bonnaroo Music Festival, and marketing for Tampa, Florida’s Gasparilla Festival of the Arts. When not in the office, I love to express myself through food, expand my musical horizons, and explore new places.

Tangled Up In BENEE | Artist Spotlight
