- In your own words, what do you do at Lippincott?
I help brands communicate as distinctly, succinctly and meaningfully as possible who they are, what they offer and why that matters.
- For you, what makes Lippincott a special place to work?
I recently stumbled upon this Frank Zappa quote: "The computer can't tell you the emotional story. It can give you the exact mathematical design, but what's missing is the eyebrows." I think everyone at Lippincott is about the eyebrows. Everyone is invested in finding that extra layer that breathes life and emotion into products in a one-of-a-kind way.

- What’s changed the most about the industry?
How we currently consume content has changed how we tell stories in every space: advertising, entertainment, news, public relations, politics…the list goes on. The fundamentals of storytelling don't necessarily change, but the pace and style are continually shifting.
- What’s your favorite place you’ve traveled to?
A while back, I found myself in Banff, Canada, on a work trip. I've been meaning to go back ever since. There's something about that place that felt really special. There’s also a lot of fondue.
- What gets you out of bed in the morning?
Coffee and a list. In that order.
