10 Paid Internships at the Florida Beer Company
in Cape Canaveral, Florida
I've been working with Asa Paul Sealy, a Miami Designer from the Caribbean with the Florida Beer Company in Cape Canaveral to promote their latest Beer products on their newly created porch. Marketing & Design students can apply for the paid internships thru IRSC. We'll be working with Dr. Calvin Williams at IRSC, after we go over details in my next meeting with Asa and Komaldevi Woelich, who is in charge of the interns participation. I've worked with Asa previously on the Miami Carnival project which was produced by our Design student Piyi Kalampaliki who now works at TAMCO.
As Asa mentioned - Piyi's work was definitely used for promotion in Miami! He was an Addy Judge at IRSC a few years ago and really was impressed by our Student Work. Also, Piyi created design & marketing for a year working for Jose Herrera at Islamorada Beer in Fort Pierce and in the Florida Keys.
I'm Working with Philip Busch at Southern Eagle in finding interns,
as well as Making Recommendations for Marketing & Design
Ahmad Toom is the Creative in Marketing & Design department for Southern Eagle. Philip Busch wants to give him some help with a team concept. Luke Forbes and Nathaniel Alicea are very interested in this position as an intern.
Philip really enjoyed a recent session with a few of my students in discussing their latest CBD product in detail on their packaging, color scheme and typography for their ReVolt product.
I also made recommendations for marketing and promoting their company to a younger audience. Philip trusted me and my students where we a great track record. Melissa Rogolino, Robbie Meyers, Mike Afonso and Brandon Sellers have contributed at Southern Eagle as interns and participants in reviews of their beer and other products.

Regional & National Conferences
& Seminars 2019-2021
As the President of the AAF Treasure Coast, I have been traveling all over the country involved in Conferences and engaging in professional seminars and meetings that keep me on top of the trends in Design, Marketing & Advertising! The benefits of being an Addy Judge provides a bigger perspective on our own Design Program.
It's great to share information on projects, design trends, technology, printing and the latest in presentation, professionalism and teaching. The benefits of networking with the AAF has been amazing over the past 10 years - I was a planning committee member on the last Annual AAF Conference in Hollywood, Florida and participated in the previous Conferences in Chicago and New Orleans, where our AAF Treasure Coast organization won an Achievement Award for our Addy Program.
