What led you to a job at Zipline Interactive?
Both Shawn and Ryan critiqued my portfolio at PreFlight, then called me in for an interview before I had even finished my Graphic Design degree at SFCC. I’m pretty sure I nailed my interview.
Do you believe Al Gore invented the Internet?
I don’t think that any one person can really claim they alone “created” the internet. That’s like saying someone invented gravity.
What is your favorite part of working in digital advertising?
Being able to see my work out in the world is incredibly satisfying, it makes the long hours and hard work well worth it!
Outside of digital advertising, what is your dream job?
In my dreams, I'm a full-time illustrator or filmmaker. It’s probably too good to be true.
What is your favorite thing about working at Zipline?
Rad co-workers. And donuts.
What do you do when you’re not at work?
I’m either drawing, watching films, screen-printing shirts, or hanging out with friends. I didn’t write sleep, because who needs sleep?
What is the craziest thing you’ve ever done?
I once bombed a penny board straight down an extremely steep hill. That fateful ride ended in pain and blood.
What is something most people don’t know about you?
I’ve never been beaten at Scrabble.
What is your favorite TV show or movie?
My favorite movie (right now) is Whiplash. It’s intense, darkly comedic, and gives me chills every time.
Who is your idol?
@100soft. I draw a lot of inspiration from his kawaii illustration style.
