When you shake hands with Rosen’s Marketing Coordinator, you may notice that he has unusually soft hands for a man. It’s one of Ned’s distinguishing features, along with his enthusiasm for tapenade and ability to play classical guitar.
Ned claims to be a social incompetent, but his friends and colleagues beg to differ. While he says his inability to deal with social situations leads to funny interactions with people, those who know him simply say it’s because he’s a very funny guy. Still, Ned dreams of becoming a mountain man who lives in the woods. (He’s also well-known for drinking an alarming amount of water.)
While Ned had no prior experience (or run-ins) with the law prior to joining Rosen’s staff, he’s certainly no stranger to marketing work. He spent 1-1/2 years as an Advertising and Communications Coordinator for a sales training firm and 2 years as a graphic and web designer for an advertising agency.
Ned has earned not one, but two Bachelor of Science degrees from the University of Florida – one in Advertising and one in Psychology. This gives him an incredible understanding of what makes people tick, and he loves to use that knowledge to tailor marketing materials accordingly.
Ned seems to recall graduating from college with honors, but he is especially proud of the certificate of achievement he earned at yearbook camp while in high school. His claim to fame, however, is having worked as a projectionist at a movie theater with a rat infestation so severe that the theater was featured on the 6 o’clock news.
Meanwhile, if you ever need help navigating Craigslist, Ned’s your man. He’s a self-proclaimed Craigslist junkie, having found his apartment, car, and job with Rosen on the site. It’s what he calls “the trifecta.”
