Jamaica Plain, MA
Senior Support Engineer
"My uncle works for BBDO in New York City, so when I was a kid, he used to talk to me about it. That was definitely one thing that got me excited about the field."
"I had a Suffolk recruiter come to my high school and he suggested it may be a good fit. I was looking for something in the city, but I hadn’t decided on the city. I thought New York City would be too big, seeing as I came from Farmington, a town of 5,000 people."
"I took a very, very small sports marketing class, I think it was seven students, and I wound up doing an internship for the Boston Celtics. That was fantastic — right there in the Garden. I designed a survey for them and analyzed it and made a very professional hour-long presentation to two of the board members. This was definitely big for me and got me ready for a lot of stuff outside of Suffolk."
"Probably having a steady schedule. It’s something I was eager to get used to. It’s 8-5. I appreciate and enjoy that and feel like I’m transitioning into more of an adult life, as opposed to the scattered class schedule."
"Unlimited vacation and a beer fridge."
"I do, actually: a gentleman named Juan Toro. I shared a couple of courses with him."
