How do you stay sharp?

Don’t get comfortable. Actively seek out opportunities to do things new and different.

What is your perfect work day/work week?

High pressure deadlines, concepting with talented teammates, tracking campaign performance, crash into a well-earned weekend.

What quality do you most value in your teammates?

Never leave a buddy hanging.

What have you learned to do as an adult that many people learn in childhood?

Being an adult is just forgetting what it is to wonder. I’ve been called many things, but rarely an adult.

Would you rather go into outer space or to the depths of the ocean? Why?

Hmm, depends who’s in my adventuring party. Can I go with Han Solo or Jacques Cousteau?

What is the last book you read and would you recommend it?

Killing Commendatore by Karuki Murakami. Yeah, but get ready for a ride – it’s beautifully written, examines the creative process, and takes a tour through surrealism.
