What inspired you to pursue a career in PR/Marketing?
By trade, I’m a lawyer, and I’ve always looked for a creative outlet - whether it be by playing an instrument, party and event planning, or creating new experiences that haven’t been done before. PR/Marketing has created that outlet, and allows me to do something else I love that involves activities other than reading, writing, and research.
Name a brand that you respect and admire (not a client!):
My favorite brands are those that are high quality, creative, and go way above the ordinary and mundane - think Four Seasons and Tom Ford on a large scale. But I also love to keep it local - and some of my favorite Baltimore brands include Flowers & Fancies and the Atlas Restaurant Group.
Daily news read or favorite national publication:
Anything from the New York Times and Wall Street Journal to Buzzfeed (even the quizzes). I try to round it out so I get a little perspective from all sides.
Go-to tactic for creating long-term value for a client:
Staying in front of the trends - and presenting concepts that haven’t been seen or done before.
