How did you meet your spouse?
In the advertising agency I worked at in Los Angeles. My first job out of college, Stephanie was hired so I have James McGee to thank for playing cupid (although that was not his intention).
Which of the following is your preferred pasta topping? Butter? Tomato sauce? Meat sauce? Pesto?
Pesto is good. How come you’re hating on Alfredo?
What's the most interesting biography you've ever read?
Ali. Amazing personality and someone who changed sports and politics. I would love to have been able to spend a day with Muhammed Ali, outside the ring of course.
What's your favorite TV or radio commercial/ad campaign of all time?
The original Mac vs. PC ads and the brave move Apple took in launching an ad campaign that never showed their product. They created a personality of the product and user as something for the audience to connect with. That opened the door for a wide variety of ads to sell an idea, like insurance companies. I really like the State Farm Mayhem campaign, great casting.
