Describe your role at NKPR.

My official title is Digital Media Specialist; I develop interactive web solutions for our brands. I’m also responsible for NKPR’s IT infrastructure so the team can focus on crucial decision making for their clients.

You’re alone on an island and can only bring 3 items. What would you bring?

My new book “Manage Your Day-to-Day” from the 99U, iPhone + Evernote App, and a boat

What’s your favourite memory of working at NKPR?

The day I set up award-winning filmmaker Paul Haggis on Twitter. He had more than one thousand followers within a few hours.

What new technology are you most excited about?

There are couple, but probably Google Glass. Just like with every new technology, it will take us time to adapt to it.

What is your favourite book?

Got a few:

Cradle to Cradle by William McDonough – A remarkable book rethinking the way we make things.

Making Ideas Happen – Scott Belsky

The best thing about working at NKPR is…

How ideas come to fruition after a creative brainstorm by the team.

Pinterest or Instagram?

Intergram. Pinterest where I curate the shoes I want to own and a few DIY I want to try. Instagram is where I pretend to be a photographer.
