What’s the most interesting thing that you do every week?
I surf every week, year-round, in either Long Island or New Jersey. The colder the water gets, and the thicker my wetsuit, the better.
Who has had the biggest impact on your career and why?
My father’s a brilliant businessman and remains my greatest mentor. He taught me the value of really listening to my clients and delivering exceptional service.
What do you most value in your colleagues?
Brainpower. This agency is loaded with the best communications professionals on the planet and I love learning from them.
Can you tell us something about you that might surprise most people who know you?
I’ve been to at least 60 metal and punk concerts, and the list is growing.
