Inside The Mind Of...

  • What does "A Brighter Way" mean to you? A brighter way is illuminated by experience, intuition, insight and passion.
  • Describe your work style. I learn by doing. I love to experiment and play with my work to the point that I get lost in it.
  • What is your most memorable moment at Rea? I'll never forget revealing our new brand to the firm. Definitely one of my best and proudest moments.

Just For Fun:

  • What profession would you choose if you didn't go into marketing? I would be a detective. I love solving puzzles.
  • What makes you get out of bed every day? Two dogs and a cat who are ready for their morning treats.
  • What is one trait you possess that you inherited from your mother or father? My father is the smartest person I know, but he's sometimes lacking in the common sense department. When I catch myself having a "Rick" moment, I can't help but laugh.
I like to create. I love solving problems. I care about the success of this firm. I am quick on my feet. I believe in hard work, with some fun peppered in.
