A Day in My Life:
What do you love most about Your City?
The way everyone looks to help each other. This week alone I am having lunch with the CEOs of both of our biggest competitors separately just to see if there are ways we can help each other.
Favorite breakfast meal & restaurant?
Love a great breakfast burrito, but I am on my wedding diet so my breakfast has consisted of an iced green tea!
What are you doing at:
6:00 AM – Wake up around 6-630, shower, grab my dog, jump in the car, and jump on my first call of the day.
10:00 AM – Usually in some sort of meeting for either internal operational things, meeting new clients, building partnerships, or planning towards expansion. Today at 10 am I was working with our Data team on how to categorize our clients so that we can start building industry knowledge and buckets.
12:00 PM - Favorite Lunch spot/meal?
Kazunori, amazing sushi rolls, but I am on my wedding diet.
7:00 PM - Usually home around this time, try to get a work out in, eat. Tonight is my birthday so I will be heading to a birthday dinner with my family.
11:00 PM – This is just about my bed time, I usually end the day with my fiancée, spend some time together, kiss her goodnight (she goes to sleep before me) and wind down by doing something mindless on my phone for a few.
What drink do you need to get through the day and at the end (and how many)?
1 Iced Green Tea though I am trying to get down to just water.
Most used App/Favorite Instagram Account?
Captio, hands down changed my life.
Where do you enjoy getting lost?
A country I am not familiar with and don’t speak the language. There is something incredibly exciting and fun of just having to “figure it out”
