Q: What would you like to see your team accomplish in 2019?
It’s to continue to build on the success in 2019. Even though we are 18 years old as a company, we are still very young and learning.
Q: Who is your role model or hero?
Q: What is your favorite book?
On the Road by Jack Kerouac.
Q: Do you use any specific method or system to run daily operations?
Q: Why did you choose your present industry at this time?
I always had two passions, design, and technology. Having the opportunity to find a sector that embraces the practice of both to create unique engagements just captured my interest from day 1.
Q: What is the best/worst moment you can remember in your career?
Becoming the youngest president in the history of SEGD (Society of Experiential Graphic Design).
Q: Looking back – if you could advise a younger version of yourself to do something different – what would it be?
I started OpenEye in December 2001 at the ripe old age of 23. 2001 was not the best of time to start a business as I had to deal with the Dot Com bust and the unfortunate tragedy of 9/11. The best advice I would say… “Wait till after the recession.”
