McCanners of New York | 37th Edition
What do you do and how long have you been at McCann?
1 year and I do Strategy

“how to clean lamé”
Current song on repeat?
Unknown Mortal Orchestra's "Extreme Wealth and Casual Cruelty”
What do you consider your greatest achievement?
Sleeping on a yoga mat on the floor my first six months out of college. The couple hundred dollars I saved not buying a mattress will be dwarfed many times over by the thousands I will spend at the chiropractor in my 50s.
What is the fanciest thing you've ever done?
The first time I expensed a cab ride home after working overtime felt fancy AF.
Your worst habit?
Neglecting my software updates. If my electronic devices could talk, they'd yell expletives at me.
Your most bizarre talent?
Taught myself to balance on the subway without gripping the pole.
Name a character trait you’ve inherited from your parents.
Chronic earliness. They get to the airport four hours before takeoff for a 45 minute domestic flight.
Best piece of advice someone has given you?
Better to beg for forgiveness than to ask for permission.
Pick two celebrities to be your parents.
Bowie and Iman. Tilda Swinton as godmother.
Favorite Instagram account you think everyone should follow.
@Ai Wei Wei. He's been sharing a very personal series on refugees the past few months that you don’t always get to see on the news.
Bjork. My little cousin found that 90s black & white pic of her in the fuzzy sweater and thought it was me. Sure.
