Are you from Jacksonville, if not where?

I was born in raised in Jville. I went to Mandarin High, then graduated from the Savannah College of Art and Design in 2011, majored in Broadcast Design and Motion Graphics. I've been with TigerLily Media since December 2011. I was so excited to find a place to work in Jacksonville, especially at an amazing studio like TLM.

What's your favorite part about working in a coworking space in downtown Jacksonville?

Being around other amazing creative people from all around Jacksonville. It's really inspiring to work with other creative people outside of my workspace.

Childhood dream job?

Like any unrealistic stereotypical child, I wanted to be an astronaut - until I realized it involved highly complex levels of science and math. That's when I started making videos with my friends, and discovered I wanted to do something with media.

If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be, and why?

I visited Italy with my family when I was ten, and have been wanting to go back ever since. I'm also 25% Italian, which is probably a given with my last name. 

A favorite quote?

"With every action, comment and conversation, we have the choice to invite Heaven or Hell to Earth.”  -Rob Bell

Favorite place to grab lunch downtown?

I really love me some Chomp Chomp, and you also can't go wrong with Burrito Gallery or Olio. 

Any special talent?

I’ve been playing bass guitar for twelve years, and acoustic for nine.
