Where did you grow up? Elmhurst, IL

What company (or companies) did you work at before Scale? I worked in live TV for a minute at NBC Sports Chicago and the Big Ten network. From there I worked for Banner Studios, the video arm of the Chicago Blackhawks. My teenage jobs included: Old Navy, the zoo and a shoe store at the mall. So I think I’m well rounded.

What is your proudest moment? I’ve fostered 15+ shelter animals and counting – it’s hard but rewarding!

Do you have any skills, talents, or hobbies that most people don’t know about? I’m very good at parallel parking

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be? (Don’t overthink it!) Paris! Eating bread and cheese, sipping a bordeaux wine

When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up? As a kid, a zoologist. As a teenager I was certain I’d be a fashion designer.

Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me…walking my dog while listening to a podcast, then sipping on coffee while I do a crossword puzzle.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working? Sitting at a brewery with my friends
