Adrian Ashley
Prior to joining the Shillington experience, my career was based primarily in real estate, where I worked as an Assistant Property Manager for a leading management group in NYC, as well as in a property management role at WeWork. 
I’ve always been interested in exploring a more creative career path and decided now more than ever is the time to take the plunge.  At university, I studied Communication and Print Advertising and am excited about getting back to these interests. I love being creative with design (around the home anyway) but now it’s time to take that creativity to the screen.
