How’d you get to where you are today, working at 435 Digital?

What is your favorite YouTube video?

Simon Sinek – “People buy why you do it, not what you do.”

Who is your favorite person to follow on Twitter and why?

Search Engine Land (@sengineland). Why? Because I am a geek, and fun for me is learning new trends and criteria/ranking for SEO.

What is your favorite thing about Chicago?

Are you kidding, that is like asking the Pope “what one thing that makes you Catholic”? I guess it has always been the diversity. Diversity in so many things, food, people, culture, music, sporting event options, special events. It is just the greatest city on the planet to me…it’s home.

What do you love about your role as a Digital Sales Manager at 435 Digital?

Probably two things: The support and dedication the Tribune has shown for the 435 channel makes me want to work even harder. The excitement is infectious and I am so proud and happy to be a part of it. Secondly, I love sharing all of my marketing knowledge with people that want to learn it! We have a group of Top Notch Sales Consultants who are not only eager to work with clients; they are second to none when it comes to knowledge! Not often do you hear someone say “I love going to work every day”…I do. My Sales Consultants inspire me as much as I teach them.
