I’m Michael, a multi-discipline Journalism, Marketing, and Communications professional. I began my professional career publishing video stories while enrolled as a senior at Indiana State University where I earned my Bachelors of Arts in Communication and Media Studies.

I possess a more than positive work ethic and have a successful track record of working within a team as well as independently, sharing my passion on how to deliver achievable objectives both online and off.

I excel in creative thinking and developing communications materials that promote brand awareness, strengthen brand loyalty, and ultimately enhance the name and profitability of key services.
