- If your life was a movie, who would direct it?
John Hughes. He captured the essence of my coming of age in Suburban Chicago in the mid 80s. I think there’s a little bit of Bender, Claire, Allison, Brian, Andrew, and even Carl and Mr. Vernon in all of us.
- Biggest celebrity you’ve ever met?
I’ve worked with and have meet a good number of celebrities. My favorite encounter was with U2. While I technically didn’t meet them, I had Bono and The Edge kicked out of my private party at Georgio Balidi in Santa Monica.
- If you were a character on Game of Thrones, how would you die?
That little brat would have me fly out the Eyrie because I wouldn’t put up with any of his shenanigans.
- All time favorite piece of advertising?
It’s a bit of a cliche, but Apple’s 1984. It’s a seminal piece of advertising and made my 13 year old self desperately want a Mac. My parents decided on an IBM because a Mac wasn’t going to last. I think my dad bought the IBM right after he bought his Betamax machine.
- What’s the most rewarding part of your job?
I get to wake up every day and create. I get to solve problems, develop ideas and make things. And I get to help everyone at Popskull do the same thing.
