What is your favorite thing about your career?
The favorite thing throughout my career has been the “creative white-board” working sessions with my team. Drawing an idea on the board, improving the idea, making it feasible through iteration in the room, and then seeing the idea come to life weeks later, gives me an incredibly rewarding feeling. When clients and others also respond positively to these ideas, the whole team feels rewarded and even more motivated to bring their best ideas to the table.
