“It is about a search, too, for daily meaning as well as daily bread, for recognition as well as cash, for astonishment rather than torpor; in short, for a sort of life rather than a Monday through Friday sort of dying.”

My Story

What is one thing about your work that most people don't know?

Work isn't me. That's a new thought for me. As a lot of Americans probably feel, most of my life I felt purpose through the work that I did, but also felt that work defined my person. Having lived in Europe for the past five years where its considered rude to ask "What do you do?" within the first hour, let alone two minutes of meeting someone, I've learned that I'm so much more. Go figure! I'm writing this at a quarter to ten pm from my offices so clearly this doesn't affect my work ethic. Also, I do have to say that working for the New York Times, work has an entirely new meaning - I actually feel that what I do (working in advertising) is very important to allowing a company like this to exist. Not only that, but work here means I get to work with the most insanely talented, intelligent and truly good people.

What makes you most proud of the work you do?

I work across five different time zones. I manage teams in Hong Kong, Paris and London but communicate with New York literally everyday, and our Dubai office hops on calls too!
