What apprenticeship experience did you benefit from the most?
Early in my career I had the opportunity to create a digital marketing ecosystem from scratch for the start-up I was working at. Upper management was old-school in their marketing beliefs, but I was able to sell-in the idea with a rough strategy doc and the trust I had earned. I did a few things right and a lot of things wrong, but learned quickly from my mistakes and found a passion along the way.
What emerging marketing technology excites you?
The application of augmented reality as a form of content simultaneously excites and scares the hell out of me.
