McCanners of New York | 48th Edition

McCanners of New York | 48th Edition

How long have you been at McCann and what do you do here?

I’m an Account Supervisor and I just had my 2 year anniversary - hard to believe! My McCann journey has spanned Furniture to Gum and now, the wonderful world of Telecom.

What do you do when you’re not working?

Probably watching sports or at a music show. I also try to stay active on a lot of the different social issues (Black Lives Matter, the election, etc). It’s easy to lose sight of these kinds of things in our daily lives, which are arguably a lot more important than anything else. Stay Woke. 

What would your DJ name be?

Schoolboy Chew

Biggie or Tupac?

Biggie all day (RIP). New York, stand up.

Favorite quote?

“2020, Ima run the whole election” - Kanye

Go-to karaoke song?

Ja Rule and Ashanti - Always On Time (I can sing both parts, double-threat)

What are you currently obsessed with?

I’ve always loved oxtail, but this summer it’s gotten out of hand. Between impromptu trips to Crown Heights and frequenting the Friday street fairs near the office, it’s safe to say people have become concerned.

Name a character trait you’ve inherited from your parents.

Reliability and dad jokes

What would be your last meal?

All of the meats (while listening to All of the Lights on repeat)

Which living person do you most admire?

Barack Obama

Where are you most likely to splurge?

I buy a lot of shoes. It’s a problem.

One thing you have always wanted to do and have not yet done.

I’ve always wanted to skydive, but then I think it’d be an embarrassing way to go if things went wrong.

Favorite Instagram account you think everyone should follow.

Mine of course (@schoolboy__chew)! It’s a combo of tastefully funny captions with a sprinkle of curated cloud shots

What’s your spirit animal?

If we’re going by Chinese zodiac, it’d be a dragon. But in actuality, probably an adolescent dog ascending to maturity.

First celebrity crush?

Angelina Jolie/Lara Croft

Celebrity doppelgänger?

I’d like to think George Clooney. But usually I get Harold from Harold and Kumar. #StarringJohnCho
