"Creating Innovative Solutions"
I was born and raised in Honolulu, Hawaii on the island of Oahu.
Hawaii is typically known as "The ALOHA State", and it was my beautiful home for many years. My family has been involved in the advertising industry for more than 30 years. Their subtle influences directed me down the marketing path and piqued my interest to always find different ways to communicate with people. My first taste for marketing started while working in the Food & Hospitality (F&H) industry as I created Facebook advertisements to draw in customers. I have a passion for creating unique advertisements.
I started my own digital media marketing agency and served as the Creative Director. My goal was to help small, local businesses gain media exposure, growth, and engagement around the community. I worked with great leaders who helped me to shape my agency to positively impact the local community.
Later, I had the pleasure of joining the Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) Hawaii as a Marketing Specialist to support the Retail, Food & Beverage, Administration, and Recreation divisions. I created effective marketing strategies to help increase revenue and brand awareness. Expanded the attention to the social media/digital media realm to optimize campaigns.
I recently served as the Digital Marketing Manager with Grand Canyon Resort Corporation. My duties have allowed me to expand strategic and creative development on digital media channels and social media applications, along with redesigning paid digital marketing strategies.
When I'm not working on creative digital marketing, I enjoy surrounding myself around others who have a passion for creative media/art. Visiting museums, creative art studios, photography, and supporting small local businesses within my community are just a few weekend hobbies that I regularly participate in.
I enjoy BBQing with my family, staying at home to watch movies from the
80's - 90's while eating buttery popcorn, and taking care of
my handi-capable pup.
I like to live an active lifestyle, centered around sports (basketball, soccer, football), fitness (TRX, weight training), and hiking.
