What is your favorite part about working at RD Thomas?
The fact that you never know what the next project will consist of. We could be asked to shoot anything; so I enjoy the surprises and constant change.
Why did you go into advertising?
I didn’t exactly plan on going into advertising, but since we do most of our own production in-house, I found a place where content creation is needed!
Netflix or Hulu?
It depends on what I’m feeling like watching at the time. I’d say Netflix for movies/documentaries and Hulu for TV shows.

I’m actually not a huge fan of pizza :O
If money was no object, what would you do all day?
I’d definitely become a lake or beach bum.
