Before falling into advertising in 2005 I was lucky to have had the tangentially relevant career + life experience of being a poop and pee mopper-upper at a veterinary hospital, a waiter at a number of mediocre restaurants, a cold-calling computer salesman for a "discount warehouse" in New Jersey, an English teacher at a roach-infested school in China, a blender tester for an appliance manufacturer in Virginia, a hole digger for a big construction company, a roofer for a small one, and an Eagle Scout.
Nutshell: I’m not afraid to get my hands dirty. That, and I can probably fix your blender. Maybe.
If you think I can help you out in any way just give me a shout.
