Okay, so while I may not have a compelling story of wisdom from lessons I’ve learned over a long-standing career in the industry, I have known that I’ve wanted to be in PR since 2012 (as I was eagerly driving the streets of Fresno with my learner’s permit), when ABC’s Scandal premiered. Bear with me. Watching Olivia Pope, crisis manager and “fixer” for political scandals, inspired me - I realized that I could share people’s stories and support something that I really believed in through PR. I was in.

In 2010, I was on the cusp of embarking on my professional life after college. I was still living in my college town - the charming Oxford, Mississippi - and working a couple of day jobs (being a barista is something everyone should try once). It was the height of the Great Recession, and open positions at big companies were sparse.

If you asked me one year ago where I would be today, I would never have guessed that I’d be here, writing this post, as the Managing Director at RPM PR. I get to help brands craft their story, have fun while doing it, and be surrounded by encouraging/fun people?  Pinch me. It took me a long while to get here, so I’ll give you a little scoop about my journey. Maybe it will help you with yours.

MR. in PR: Three Tips for Guys in Public Relations

I started out as an intern at RPM this semester and I’m not going to lie, I had my doubts about being part of an all-female team. It’s not like I haven’t worked with women before, and I do consider myself quite a gentleman, but I worried about not being able to relate to my coworkers and possibly feeling unheard. Gender for me is not a big deal - I want to get that out of the way right off the bat - but it is a very different experience to be a male in a female-dominant field.
