Background

Summary

A question I am often asked: “Is monster your real middle name?” The answer is no, but it is much more interesting than Marie. I believe taking on Monster as my middle name allows me to display my playful character and probably also my love for horror movies.

Two years ago I graduated from the University of South Florida and embarked on my journey to find my place in the career world; specifically the Advertising and Marketing world. My focus in school was in creative advertising where I learned a lot about conception, branding and design. These are skills I am forever honing and will bring with me wherever I go in life. I believe that advertising is a very powerful and strategic art form.
