People define advertising agency culture. At least that’s what we think. And it’s why a big part of our hiring and professional development is based on our shared values. Ours are:
- Fearless: Of course we can do it. Absolutely. No doubt. Doesn’t matter if it’s the first time or the thousandth. We face and embrace and race through a changing world, brave because we have each other.
- Tenacious: Proactive by nature, optimistic by choice. Forward as a way of life. Solve as a mode of thinking. If you believe in something, sink your teeth into it and go, go, go.
- Passionate: Everything matters. Every client interaction. Every comma and every decimal. If it’s worth doing, it’s worth doing to the best of your ability.
- Me & We: What can you do to make your team successful? Find your moment, your specialty, your piece of the puzzle. And then own it for the greater good.
Now, back to Hayden, one of our digital and data coordinators. Here goes!
You’re going on a road trip. Where are you headed?
I’ve always wanted to visit the Pacific Northwest so I’d probably be heading to Astoria, Oregon. It’s near Cannon Beach and one of my favorite movies, “The Goonies,” was filmed there.
If you could bring back an artist from the past for one last show, who would it be?
This is a hard one but I’m going to have to say John Prine. He just recently passed away and I was so bummed about it.
You’re going toe-to-toe in a cook-off with Bobby Flay, and you pick the dish. What are you making?
Sausage Risotto and I’m letting the pressure cooker do all the work!
If you’ve ever had a celebrity encounter, who was it?
While working with the Pikes Peak International Hill Climb Association, I got to meet Dai Yoshihara. He is one of my favorite professional drivers and I have looked up to him for a long time.
What is the best form of potatoes?
Mashed potatoes, without a doubt.
What’s Colorado Springs’ best-kept secret?
The Green Line Grill. Best burgers in Colorado Springs!
