Colleen Craig
marketing research director
For the firs time, in a long time, I got back into the habit of writing. My only regret is not being able to take the actual classes in New York and have ongoing in person dialogue.

You guys don't seem like the types to do that though - but that almost gives you the perfect alibi.
