JOB: Marketing Firm Owner
HOME: Atlanta, Georgia
Carey, 25, grew up in Atlanta, Georgia, where he continues to reside today.
Not satisfied with working in a conventional office environment, he decided to pursue his real passion--marketing.
Carey's flair for crafting innovative promotions helped him to launch his own event marketing and promotions firm whose high-profile clients have included Adidas America, The Weather Channel, Stoli Vodka, Atlanta's High Museum of Art, Turner South, Verizon Wireless through its agency partner Mini Mobile Media, and Cartoon Network through Hothouse Inc.
He has served as National Political Director for the College of Democrats of America, one of the youth arms of the Democratic National Committee, and was one of the youngest members of the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce.
In his spare time, Carey enjoys playing flag football for the Atlanta Storm, an NFFLA team, working out, indoor rock climbing and creating "fashion forward couture" from items he finds at thrift shops.
"I should be the next Apprentice because I am a marketing guru and that's what this show is all about!" asserts Carey.
