Q: Where are you from?
A: Right here in CT! I grew up over in Burlington and then bounced around for a bit.
Q: How did you choose this career path?
A: For some reason, I've always paid more attention to the ads than the shows (especially during the Super Bowl). I love trying to figure out the insights that are behind a solid campaign, so strategy was just the perfect fit.
Q: What do you like most about your job?
A: I love how much it changes day to day. Marketing is such an innovative field that you really have to pay attention to what the latest trends are and know how to incorporate them into your work in a cool way.
Q: What is your favorite part of being a member of the ZGM team?
A: I'd have to say the people and the culture. The team is really close and supportive, so you feel comfortable bouncing ideas off one another.
Q: What is the strangest job you’ve ever had?
A: I haven't had any strange jobs necessarily, but the toughest job I've ever had was being a soccer ref as a teen. Parents of 8 year olds are surprisingly vicious...
Q: Do you have any pets?
A: A cat -- Gracie Lou Freebush (Miss Congeniality shout out)
Q: Name one thing on your bucket list.
A: I unknowingly/accidentally kayaked with sharks once and it was one of the scariest moments of my life. So swimming with sharks is up next (do what scares you and all that jazz).
Q: What would you consider to be your greatest accomplishment?
A: I was voted funniest in high school, which I'll be bragging about well into my 90s.
Q: Do you have any hobbies outside of work?
A: I'm into good sports (read: soccer, baseball, volleyball) and extreme sports (read: zorbing, bungee jumping, sky diving). I also know an unnecessary amount of information about celebrities and the entertainment industry, so trivia nights are my jam.
Q: What’s your favorite food? Least favorite food?
A: Cake and kale. You can guess which is which.
Q: Pick three words to describe yourself.
A: Quirky, motivated, easy-going -- I hope.
Q: Favorite musician?
A: Phil Collins.
Q: If you were a Crayola crayon, what color would you be?
A: Cerulean. People can't spell either of our names.
Q: You’re about to perform in a karaoke bar. What song do you pick?
A: Party in the USA. (sorry)
Q: If you could live in a TV show, book, or movie, which one would you pick?
A: Parks and Recreation, hands down, since Leslie Knope is my idol. I would say Game of Thrones, but there's a bit too much murder going on at the moment.
