• I believe that no person in advertising should only be good at one thing. A copywriter should understand the role of the planner, the designer should understand copy concepts. I feel that some agency employees can become too specialized, thus wasting their talents.

• Oh and I also secretly really like Pina Coladas. I don’t know why.
