I have wanted to work in business ever since I was a kid. When I was in fourth grade, I created an imaginary Fortune 500 company and made my friends its executives. This ideal has been interwoven throughout my life ever since.
When I was a sophomore in high school, I started selling items on eBay that my family no longer wanted, and eventually expanded that out to friends, their parents, their friends, etc. until I had a full-fledged business working with dozens of clients. Originally registered as Kitsap Krap and ultimately Auctions-on-Hudson, this entrepreneurial endeavor sustained me for most of my adolescence.
Kitsap Krap has taught me how to interact with people professionally and manage clients, make quick decisions, hit deadlines, and of course, how to get attention. Combined with a degree in history, this unique skill set has been a great creative asset.
