Q: In three words, how would you describe yourself?
A: Speedy, dynamic, flexible.
Q: In three words, how would you describe your career?
A: Tech-centric, fast-paced, fulfilling.
Q: What does a typical day look like for you?
A: Currently my day-to-day has been focused mainly on covering stores in the Philly market, where we had some personnel turnover and my help has been needed. Normally my job entails a lot of travel, which I find to be exciting and engaging. Being in my home market is nice too, as I love the place where I live, and it gives me more time to work on other passions of mine in my spare time. Soon the project load will settle down and we will be fully staffed once again, and I will be traveling out of market to train new and existing reps on how to excel in their roles.
Q: What is a trend that you’re seeing right now in the industry?
A: The obvious one is interactive displays – displays that people can put their hands on! BDSmktg is growing because we have come to specialize in that area.
Q: What is your favorite food?
A: Thai food is a big thing for me right now! Philly has the best food anywhere!
Q: Do you have any hobbies? Things you like to do on your free time?
A: I have too many hobbies! I really enjoy taking a lot of things on. Primarily, I’m a musician and I love creating music. I also used to own a bicycle shop in Philly, so I like fixing bikes on the side, I was known as saving people’s bikes and putting them back together!
Q: If you could go back in time, what year would you travel to?
A: Between 1995-1996 was the best time to be alive! Music was great back then. I would love to experience it especially as a 20-year-old that year!
Q: What is your favorite part about working for BDS?
A: I love working with technology and being hands-on. You will always catch me repairing or troubleshooting things. One of my main favorites is working with people out on the field.
