After graduating high school, I watched many of my friends flock for cities like Chicago, D.C., New York, and San Francisco. Cities like these are full of opportunity, amenities like bars and restaurants that you can actually walk or take public transportation to, and most importantly, LIFE! Suffice it to say many of my friends and family are shocked when I tell them I want to live in Detroit.
Growing up near Detroit, one thing comes to mind, the automobile. So many people have enjoyed a fantastic livelihood by either working directly or associated with the Big 3. I knew eventually, I too in some way would work in the automotive industry.
While studying at Walsh College, one subject continued to stand out to me: marketing. So when the opportunity to become a Project Manager for Team Detroit came along, I jumped at the chance. Team Detroit has pioneered many incredible ad campaigns and is filled with the most creative people I’ve ever had the pleasure to work with. Day in and day out, I get to work on one of the World’s largest automobile accounts: Ford Motor Company. I’m challenged daily to work in a team to come up with new ways to excite the brand. As a digital project manager I contribute to the ideation, creation, and maintenance of the websites, social media programs, and the overall digital brand. It’s inspiring to work with a client that is cutting edge in both product and technology.
I am excited about the possibilities of Detroit and all of the positive things that are happening in the city. Every great city needs young people to contribute and that’s what I hope to do. Working for an agency dedicated to the industries and endeavors that make Detroit so unique makes going to work every day an adventure. Team Detroit bears national presence and creative relevance in the ever changing world of media and marketing – this is an organization I am proud to be a part of.
