Director of Marketing & Communications
Joined AYS: 2018
What is your educational background?
I graduated from the IU Kelley School of Business at IUPUI with a Bachelor of Science in Business with a major in Marketing in 2014.
What professional experience do you have?
I have been the Marketing and Communications Manager for AYS since July of 2018, specializing in marketing strategy, website design and management, internal and external communications, and graphic design. Prior to joining AYS, I worked as a Marketing Coordinator for a fundraising brand focused on raising funds for kids, as well as a Project Manager for a non-profit university.
What experience do you have working with children?
During my time at AYS, I’ve had the opportunity to substitute at a variety of AYS sites many times and have engaged with kids and provided them with homework support, social and emotional support, and of course, play time! Being the marketing guy, I also like to visit AYS sites from time to time to interact with kids and take photos, videos, and sometimes even interview them!
What are some fun facts about you, or favorite things you like to do?
I’m a very active person who loves hiking, indoor climbing, biking, playing basketball, kayaking, wakeboarding—you name it! I also have a talent for singing and doing lots of different voices (which are popular with the kids). I’m a huge Green Bay Packers fan, and have been since I was about eight years old. Go Pack Go!
