Where did you grow up? Born in California, moved to Chicago suburbs when I was about 10, and grew up in Schaumburg.

What company (or companies) did you work at before Scale? Worked as the sole employee of a printing and advertising company called New Life Printing in Algonquin, Illinois. Then moved to an advertising agency in Schaumburg called Pinnacle Advertising.

What is your proudest moment? Adopting/saving my dog Kira. She was originally rescued from a kill shelter in Alabama. Being able to give her a spoiled and happy life after all she’s gone through is as rewarding as it gets.

Do you have any skills, talents, or hobbies that most people don’t know about? I used to act, dance and direct in the community theater world.

If you could be anywhere other than here, right this minute, where would you be? (Don’t overthink it!) Australia. Specifically, Heron Island off the Great Barrier Reef.

When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up? An actor.

Finish this sentence. On Sunday mornings, you can usually find me… walking around the beaches of San Diego with my dog and a cup of coffee!

How do you think your colleagues would describe you? Dependable and enthusiastic. Ready to lend a hand whenever needed.

What are you happiest doing, when you’re not working? Traveling. Being with friends and family. Hanging out with my dog.

What are you complimented on most in your work? Depending on the type of project: Speed and Intuitiveness.

What’s your favorite thing about your city (San Diego)? The fresh air, sunshine, friendly faces, and various neighborhoods being only 15 minutes away with varying vibes for your night out.

What’s your go-to Karaoke song? “Ironic” by Alanis Morissette
