“We've done several escape rooms before, but this one had a fun storyline that KEPT you in the story. Other rooms, you are solving puzzles and lose the excitement of the storyline. By having cast members guide you through the story, it had no dead spots.”

Etsy Business and Other Customer Service Experience

With my roots in the hospitality capital of the world (Orlando), I felt natural having customer service oriented jobs my secondary sources of income. When not working customer service in various retail outlets, I also developed an Etsy store (I like to keep busy...) where I created geek-inspired pixel art out of fuseable beads. While these were merely stepping stones to finding my true path, I believe they were building blocks to developing my creative and entrepreneurial spirit.
