Nick Anthony, US Marine Corps Marketing and Communications Director. After two years of traveling the world, Nick decided to pursue a commission in the U.S. Marine Corps in 2010. He has served in many functional areas both CONUS and OCONUS and is now working as a recruiting strategist in Seattle, WA. If he's not refining his understanding of enterprise sales models, business development, and marketing strategy, he spends his time peak-bagging in the Cascades, pushing himself on technical alpine routes. He likes his coffee black and his whisky neat if for no other reason than his being a grown man.
