How did your career begin, tell us about your education and the first job you ever landed?

I sort of stumbled into advertising. I feel like I got lost, but somehow ended up in the right place. Through equal parts of dumb luck and amazing guidance from some people I respect greatly, I ended up going to Portfolio School in Atlanta, GA. It was two amazing and sleep deprived years, and when I graduated I had a portfolio I was pretty damn proud of.
