I joined Houston Promotional Products Association (HPPA) in 2017 after being introduced by a contract decorator who was helping me navigate the industry. Prior to launching my distributorship, Graphic Stylus, I was a project manager at ExxonMobil. I entered the Oil & Gas world to explore my passion for technology. In addition to rolling out large scale enterprise technology infrastructure projects across Asia, South America, Europe and North America; I was given the opportunity to represent ExxonMobil IT during recruitment efforts. In those career fairs, I saw the importance of a strong brand and immediately fell in love with it.
