Environmental to the core, Stuffmapper’s mission is to save millions of items from landfills everywhere by technologically enabling people with a far better way to give and get free stuff (electronics, furniture, etc.) that is curbside or in the house.

Thanks for stopping by; I look forward to connecting with you and seeing what you are up to! (: From June 2012 to January 2014 (1 year 8 months) Greater Seattle AreaConsultant @ From June 2013 to November 2013 (6 months) Product Manager @ IntegrityID™ is the premiere membership association of certified people who are committed to integrity, making it safer for people to interact with them on the Internet and to build meaningful relationships. As Product Manager in a small start-up company, I leveraged resources to aid in business development, conducted in-depth competitive analysis, and was closely involved with all things related to marketing and public relations. Working with and learning from my associates, who have remarkable business experience from companies such as Microsoft, Amazon, and Motorola, has given me invaluable business insight on a high interdisciplinary level. My time at IntegrityID was enjoyable and positions me for great future endeavors. From September 2010 to February 2011 (6 months) Assistant Product Manager @ From June 2010 to September 2010 (4 months) Technology Lead @ I along with four colleagues created a company called GorillaCorps, which specialized in interactive, guerrilla marketing. Our team put on one-time events such as flash mobs and other eye-catching, buzz-generating events that were fun for participants and online viewers. We posted a polished, edited video of the event on social networking sites like Facebook and YouTube/GorillaCorps (watch the two “favorite” videos!), which allowed the content to reach a wide audience. As the technology lead, I was in charge of website design and ensuring that our website and social networks received and directed traffic in a manner that was strategically advantageous. I became familiar with SEO, event planning, personal B2B selling, obtaining financing from investors, and what it takes to run my own company. From January 2010 to June 2010 (6 months) Marketing/Sales Intern @ As a six-month marketing and sales intern at DRY Soda Co., I provided samples and product education to customers, assisted in managing online and in-store sales, coordinated local events, and performed local in-store analysis. Also, I carried out various marketing initiatives, such as operating the company Twitter page and contributing to the DRY Recommends section on the website (www.drysoda.com). Working at DRY gave me firsthand knowledge of what it is like to be part of a young, fast-paced, energetic company. From June 2009 to December 2009 (7 months) Volunteer @ Serving as an Amigos de las Americas (like a Peace Corps for high school students) volunteer for six weeks in a small village in central Mexico gave me invaluable experience. I taught classes in Spanish occasionally using my guitar skills, educating kids on such topics as the importance of good health. My partner and I also facilitated a community development project, which required organizing town meetings and hearing the opinions of town leaders. I regularly conversed with Mexicans and networked with eighty American volunteers from all over the U.S. This experience taught me what it is like to work with people from another culture that I had never met before, and it also confirmed that having good manners, patience, and social skills are essential to success. In the eight months leading up to foreign operations, I trained, engaged in fundraising, and gained first-hand knowledge of what takes to run a non-profit. From October 2004 to August 2005 (11 months)
