JumpingFor the past several years, I’ve been immersed in the marketing industry – imparting my skills, arsenal and expertise at several agencies in Atlanta and small businesses across the United States.

Thus far, my methodical and proactive work style has been the foundation of my career and has helped me consistently achieve success.


JesseBack in 2000, (after falling in love with computer animation), I attended The Art Institute of Atlanta for several years majoring in Media Arts and Animation. After a brief hiatus from school, I eventually earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Interactive Media Design from AI’s online division, The Art Institute of Pittsburgh Online (yep, 3.9 G.P.A.).

In September 2017, I earned my HubSpot Email Marketing Certification.
