I went to the University of Michigan to receive my BS in Neuroscience and was on the fast track to applying to medical school. After enduring enough burnout, I switched gears to work in corporate advertising and sales in Scottsdale, AZ for almost 3 years and absorbed as much industry knowledge as I could before taking my talents to Responsival in early 2017. The switch from a publicly traded enterprise to growing local startup was a challenge and culture shift I couldn't resist; I was able to use my skill set to make an impact on local businesses through a catered, approachable solution.
Working with the Heinz Memorial Chapel was a sort of milestone moment when we realized we had a growing reputation here in Pittsburgh. We revamped their dated website to take full advantage of Webflow's design capabilities and CMS tools for ongoing scalability. Not only was it a real privilege to modernize the web presence for such a decorated university landmark, but it was a sheer delight to work with Wendi and Karen, our primary points of contact, to turn the website into something that was unique and branded for the chapel!
Finding meaningful solutions for our clients. Each business or organization we work with is so unique, even those across the same vertical, that we can't simply administer a turnkey package or service that applies for everyone. Providing a catered strategy and approach is a win-win for all parties involved; the client sees a visible impact from their website and marketing, while we are able to nurture a mutually beneficial, long-term relationship instead of a one-and-done project.
I love to exercise as a counterbalance to my otherwise desk-anchored job. If you're local, you can find me after hours or on weekends at X Shadyside on Walnut St or hiking a trail anywhere from Frick Park to Ohiopyle. My girlfriend and I also love traveling and planning trips, whether it's a local getaway or an overseas journey.
Yes. If we define cheesesteaks as sandwiches, and they use a single bun or slice of bread around the meat and toppings, why wouldn't a hot dog also be considered a sandwich?
