the place i fell into advertising.
 Michigan state university
Bachelor of Arts, Creative Advertising
CGPA: 3.24
Deans List: Junior & Senior Year. Why not freshman and sophmore year? I had a little too much fun. Can you really blame me? 
Freshman Year:

I went in thinking I was going to be a businessman. I won an award for the most successful business pitch in BUS-101. Ego successfully inflated.


Sophomore Year: 

I discovered all the business classes were boring. I thought my future looked bleak. I figured I'd give Packaging Engineering a try.


Junior Year:

I realized I had to pass a physics class to become a Packaging Engineer. I thought it’d be easy. I took a physics class. I thought wrong. I promptly dropped said physics class. I didn’t know what to do. At least I had that award from BUS-101.


Senior Year:

I took a career aptitude test. It told me to try advertising. I listened. I fell into advertising. I ran with it. I won some ADDYS. I ran some more. I worked with some cool people from China and helped enter a project into Cannes. I kept running. I went to the One Show in NY and saw what great work really means. I became determined. I'm still running to this day.
