Best thing about my job: Without a doubt – the people. Through this career I’ve become dear friends with many of our clients, vendors and freelancers. It’s a ‘bonus’ part of the job that I never contemplated when I first started out in this industry.

Still made my flight though…
Other facts about me: I’m a huge music geek. My music collection has over 12,000 songs covering just about every category.
