- Side gigs: My dog. He’s like a second full-time job.
- Media trend you’re tracking: Video, video, video (increase in viewership across all platforms, dayparting, viewership by age, future of, evolution of various platforms, etc).
- Why media: I interned for Bill Kurtis after college because I thought I wanted to write for television. When I realized I cared more about why he was switching his focus from producing PBS documentaries to producing “Cold Case Files” for A&E, it was clear that I was more interested in targeting than writing show voice-overs. Then I found out there was a whole industry dedicated to targeting and I was hooked.
- Why KSM? The work, the people, the ideas, the clients.
