In the game of new business...

Position:  Director Business Development

What was your first impression of BKV:  I was so happy to walk into an agency that didn’t feel overdone on the design of the workspace!

If you could choose anyone in the world to have lunch with, who would it be: Peter Jennings—but  he’s dead, so I’d have to say Enrique Iglesias...yes, I know he can’t really sing. 

Do you speak any other tongues (examples…Pig Latin, Parseltongue, Spanish, French, Social Media, etc): Castellano Spanish, well, sort of.  And Memphis Southern

Have you spent time abroad, if so where: Lived in London, Mexico and Buenos Aires

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up:  I can’t remember that-but I do remember that I wanted to have 5 children.

Favorite restaurant for a business meeting: Bones!  (if they’re payin’)

Favorite restaurant for happy hour:  Anywhere in my neighborhood, so that I can ride my bike:  Six Feet Under, The Shed, Dakota Blue, et al.

Favorite local newspaper – Atlanta Business Chronicle or Atlanta Journal Constitution:   Atlanta Business Chronicle

Next big “business” thing:  Finding and closing a monster account

If you were stuck on an island, what are the two things you would want to have with you: My iPhone and my dog, Scootie

Current top five playlist:   Not sure, probably something latin-I haven’t been focused on my iPod/iTunes lately.  I’ve just been trying to get SEM and all that goes with it!
