Isaiah is an Awkward gentleman originally from West Philadelphia that has now migrated to the beautiful Tampa Bay area. A mathematics major at the University of Tampa, Isaiah has always been driven to pursue new challenges. While he has no prior marketing experience, Isaiah believes that he has the ability to express himself in ways that people would love through different forms of clothing and social branding, and it is an ability he wishes to share with the world. The word ‘awkward’ describes the category Isaiah has been put in his entire life. To him being awkward is not a bad thing; to be awkward means to be different as an individual and having the ability to stand out from stereotypical images placed on everyone in society. From school to work to friendships; Isaiah has always been that awkward guy that fits in with every group he encounters. Whether it’s the ‘nerds,’ the ‘weirdos,’ the ‘jocks,’ or any other social group, he has managed to relate to each group and still remain awkward enough to positive representation of its members.
As the Chief Merchandising Officer (CMO), it is Isaiah’s duty to design and create all of the merchandising content for the company. Isaiah works diligently with every client in need of designs for merchandising. He believes that being called awkward means a person stands out for a reason he or she may not know but others see it in them. In his position, he strives to ensure that each and every client has the ability to be the best awkward company that they can be. He makes it his personal mission to ensure that whatever a client envisions will come to life after a session with yours truly.
