My Work

This page highlights my professional experiences up to the present day, sort of like an interactive résumé.

  • October 2012 – During my first year of college, I became an On-Air Radio Personality/DJ at Middlesex County College’s Blue Colt Radio. This experience helped me relax and build my confidence when speaking to a large crowd.

  • April 2014 – My friend, Johnluke, offered me an opportunity to help him write for his late-night talk show, The Late Program with Johnluke Chaparro, which allowed me express my creativity in a fun way and to look into the future to see what could potentially be in store for me in a broadcasting job.

  • Summer 2014 – I worked a paid summer internship at Firmenich where I assisted the Perfumery Department’s Sales Excellence team by preparing Customer Relationship Management pricing data preps, as well as presales support with Global logistics coordination of samples, market products, and fragrance oils.

  • Summer 2015 – I worked a second internship at Firmenich, but this time, I provided administrative support for the company’s Colgate-Palmolive Global Business Unit (GBU), updated inventory files for home care and personal care, and global market product coordination and organization. I also supported project managers with ongoing perfumery and regulatory projects.
