Oregon State Beaver - Marketing Management/Fermentation Science Grad
I'm a 2008 graduate from Oregon State University. I have a bachelors in marketing management and my minor is in fermentation science, where the emphasis of my studies was beer.
I have been a home brewer for the past 8 years and am a recent entrepreneur establishing a company that offers private in home brewing lessons. see www.brewsathome.com
After college I immediately got hired into the marketing department of a repo company and was quickly promoted to supervisor of the department (up to 12 personell). I lasted 3 years in this position, but I lacked passion for what I was selling and what the company was doing and it drained my inner self. This is why I started up my own business and quit the job.
My venture is fun, but it is done out of passion and it very viable and struggles to pay the bills. I would like to seek employment brewing mainly, but would settle for a sales/marketing position within a brewery as this is where the bulk of my experience is.
I lack experience brewing on a large scale system in a commercial setting, but I have the drive and desire to learn quickly and become a true team player.
