Tell us a bit about yourself.
I’m 23 years old and grew up in Buffalo, New York. I went to school at the University at Buffalo where I graduated with a Fine Arts degree in Graphic Design. Since I was young, I’ve always been involved in anything artistic, whether it was building lego or lincoln log structures or drawing, which eventually led to my career as a designer. Other activities I enjoy include traveling, being active, hanging out with friends and family, listening to music, and going to concerts / festivals.
Why did you decide to join LoopMe?
LoopMe is my first job after graduating college and, to say the least, has helped me immensely with defining my career path and teaching me countless new skills. A goal of mine was to move from Buffalo to New York City to start my career in advertising as a designer. LoopMe made my aspirations a reality, I can’t thank the company enough!
What’s your job role and day to day responsibilities?
I’m a Visual UI/UX Designer on the Creative Team at LoopMe, responsible for designing and/or building our interactive rich media ads for our US clients. Whether it’s a concept for a RFP or an actual campaign, I’m tasked with crafting the best ad which offers a fluid user experience that will attract consumers, while meeting the client’s key objectives.
I’m fortunate to work on a team that inspires one another to create their best work. Aside from working with my team, I work closely with most of the other departments at LoopMe, which is also super helpful and rewarding!
What’s been the best moment at LoopMe?
Picking out one moment is tough. However, I’d say being given the opportunity to meet and train with my team in our London office was at the top of the list. Also, our 5 Year Anniversary retreat was great as well. All US office employees and some from London came to a resort an hour north of New York City to participate in team building activities, which was followed by a company party! It’s always valuable to be in the same room as the employees from other offices.
Tell us a fun fact about yourself.
I won an art show my senior year of high school where my drawing was then taken and hung up in the Capitol Building in Washington D.C. for a full year!
