Where are you from?
I am from a small town in Fairfield County Connecticut called Redding. Lots of trees.
How did you choose this career path?
Mad Men is one heck of a show! All joking aside the AMC drama did bring my attention to the field, but it was my first few internships where I began to fall in love with the rollercoaster experience that is advertising.
What do you like most about your job?
I really enjoy meeting new people and solving problems. It really can be fun linking the creative and business worlds together.
What is your favorite part of being a member of the ZGM team?
There is great momentum in the agency, it feels like you are at the center of the action and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
What is your favorite quote?
“I never lose. I either win or I learn.” Nelson Mandela
Do you have any pets?
I may get a fish soon, but I also plan on having dogs in the future. Maybe even a cat who knows.
Name one thing on your bucket list.
Visit each continent – twice.
Do you have any hobbies outside of work?
I am a very avid photographer outside of work. I minored in the field in college and continue to work with film as much as I can these days. I am also a pretty big gearhead, and have been restoring a 1967 Mustang in my spare time.
Impossible question! Tom Petty, Royal Blood, and Neck Deep are top of my playlists these days however.
If you could live in a TV show, book, or movie, which one would you pick?
I think I would have to pick That 70’s Show since everyone says I look like Eric Forman.
If you could hang out with anyone for a day, alive or dead, who would it be and why?
John Lennon for sure. I think he would have changed the world if he was still around.
