My passions include soccer and marketing. I played soccer all my life and continue to be very active in the sport. I trained with the junior squad of Associação Atlética Ponte Preta between the ages of 15-17 under Coach, Francisco da Silva Júnior “Chiquinho”. Ponte Preta is the oldest professional soccer club in Brazil being founded in 1900.
Jumping a few years into the future; after college I worked shortly for an NBC affiliate station, editing and producing commercials spots. I was then hired full time by an advertising agency, Harris ProMedia, as a Marketing Creative in charge of generating multifaceted campaigns for clients. It was a small but powerful firm, generating over two million a year in revenue. I helped create some of their most memorable commercials before they were bought out and closed in early 2006.
For the past few years I have worked mostly with web marketing social media, online campaigns, SEO, eblasts, AdWords and analytics. Formulating partnerships, affiliates, and direct marketing strategies for optimal ROI.
I come from the creative side of the industry editing videos, graphics and websites; however, I am also very fluent in “sales” and have become accustom to the sales cycle and confident with face-to-face client proposals.
My ultimate goal is to work in an environment where quality and innovation is at the forefront of the business.
