What’s your favorite part of your job?
I really enjoy working with our clients to identify the individuals or groups within their organizations who can help bring a concept to life to a point where an idea ultimately becomes a compelling story that truly resonates with their audiences. There are always people out there who can help tell your story – you just have to find them.
What’s something people are always surprised to find out about you?
I have six tattoos, all of which are not visible while at work. People’s reactions are priceless when they learn that a relatively clean-cut guy has ink. My advice: get one – it’s a rush, but also addicting.
What quote best describes your outlook on life?
“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” – Aristotle
