WORK

Why did you pick No Limit Agency as the next stop in your career?

I was excited to work with No Limit’s sister publication, 1851 Franchise. 1851 does content marketing in a way that I haven’t seen done anywhere else, and I saw that as a great opportunity to grow as a marketing professional.

What do you love most about working at No Limit Agency?

I love working for a company that prizes strong personal relationships with their clients. It’s so much fun watching clients visit the office. They are excited just to hang out here. It’s like they’re visiting old college pals.

What do you wish the outside world would think about No Limit Agency?

I wish that the outside world had a better understanding of the value of content marketing and saw how No Limit and 1851 are using it to produce amazing, quantifiable results for our clients.

What has been your proudest moment at No Limit Agency?

Last week I beat our CEO and president in back-to-back ping-pong matches. They didn’t make me the new CEO or president, which was disappointing and unfair, but it was still a big deal.

In what ways will No Limit Agency become the greatest mid-sized agency ever?

By continuing to provide a comprehensive suite of marketing and PR services for our clients, No Limit Agency is going to attract more and more clients who are looking to both streamline and diversify their marketing efforts.

PLAY

Who have been influential in your life and why?

My father has been the most influential person in my life. He’s shown me that it’s OK to be wrong as long as you are open to being corrected. My dad is wrong so, so often. But he’s cool about it.

Outside of work, what do you like to do?

I spend most of my time in my garage, banging around and making saw noises.

Drink or food of choice?

Anyone who says anything other than pizza is a liar who just wants to sound sophisticated. But my favorite food is squid ink pasta with scallops and white truffle oil.

What is the best gift you ever received for your birthday?

For my 18th birthday, my grandparents gave me a pen that writes upside down. It’s too small to hold comfortably, and it’s nearly impossible to open, but it came with a convenient faux-leather pouch, which is important for a young man headed off to college.

 If there was one brand you would love to work with, which one and why?

Friendly’s. I miss you, Friendly’s. Come to the Midwest.
