What was your first ever job?

At 7 I started my own car washing gig, dragging a wagon of car washing supplies and making weekly rounds knocking at neighbours’ doors to see if they wanted their car washed at the bargain price of $2. But as far as a “real” job, typical American: Newspaper route at the age of 12, delivering papers from my bicycle in all weather, at ridiculous hours.


What advice would you give your 18-year-old self?

You can only plan so far in advance; leave a bit of wiggle room for adventure. Also, watch out for that concussion at age 19, it’s a doozy.


Who is your favourite person/brand to follow on social media and why?

FastCo (Fast Company Magazine); their articles always spark my creativity and get my entrepreneurial side revved to try new ideas.


What’s your favourite app or game and why?

Probably the Nike Run Club app; I use it daily, and have logged over 4000kms with it. The stats drive me to constantly improve my running speed and distance, and having longitudinal data at my fingertips means I can spot trends and potential issues with my health with fairly good accuracy.


What do you love most about your job?

I work with some amazingly talented people, who enjoy a challenge. I also relish the creativity that my job allows, to solve the weird and wonderful problems our clients come to us with.
