Last week I was awarded with the American Advertising Federation Tucson’s Hall of Fame Next Generation Award.

The Next Generation Award, founded in 2014, recognizes those outstanding advertising individuals, age 40 or younger, who are making a significant impact on the industry through their leadership, career achievement, community contributions and inspiration to others to excel.

I want to thank the individuals who have helped shape my career path to the direction it has taken over the last fourteen years including my college professor who pushed me into photography, my great mentors at my marketing career, my colleagues and friends who continued to motivate and inspire me as well as to my clients who helped make all this possible. If not for you all, this could not have happened.
