#TheAmishProject

In 2011, I was tired of being chained to my Blackberry (ha!), so I decided to live for 90 days completely off the technological grid; no cell phone, no internet, and no TV. It ended up being one of the best decisions I ever made. The story got picked up by the popular press, I ended up on Good Morning America, and then David Perez (creative recruiter at Leo Burnett at the time) saw the interview and inexplicabally offered me my first job in advertising.  



Recognition: This story - and the now-extremely-cringeworthy iMovie video I made to accompany it - were covered by The Today Show, Good Morning America, The Tonight Show, Ellen, USA Today, CNN, Yahoo!, Upworthy and 20+ additional press outlets.




With no other method of communication, I got really good at writing letters. Well, "really good" depends on who you're asking.
