What brands do you admire, and why?

I admire brands that stay true to their voice, but aren’t afraid to try something that’s never been done to get their message out there.

What gets you excited to come to work each day?

The work. The next great idea. I’m motivated to create great work, and chase something that could be even better. Every day we get to see the best in brands and share that with the world.

The people. Because you’ve got to have a great team surrounding you to accomplish great things.

What’s the weirdest thing on your desk, and why do you have it?

I have a Clay Aiken bobblehead on my desk. I got this unfortunate item from our annual white elephant gift swap a few years ago. Today he’s still sitting on my desk holding my business cards and has become quite the conversation piece.
