D’Marius Gillespie

Level 2 Intern

Even at a very young age, D’Marius has never met a stranger. He grew up participating in various sports, including basketball, football and baseball. He was continually thrust into diverse environments, and was always intrigued by various cultural backgrounds.

Sports have been instrumental in his life in many aspects, but his love for music can be credited to his passion for writing, whether through poetry or song. In 2014, D’Marius signed a Division I scholarship to attend the University of Louisiana at Monroe and pursue a career in football. Initially, he planned to major in mass communication with a concentration in journalism. Upon arrival to campus, he was introduced to another realm of communications – public relations – by an academic advisor.

Once enrolled in the courses, he fell in love with the versatility of the subject matter within the major. He went on to letter four years in football and graduate with a Bachelor of Arts in Mass Communications in Public Relations. He is currently enrolled in the graduate program at ULM, with plans to graduate with his Master of Arts in Communications in the spring of 2020.

Outside of the agency, D’Marius enjoys listening to music, working out and is a self proclaimed Yelp! addict – always looking for a new restaurant to try out!
