- For you, what makes Lippincott a special place to work?
Our work is interdisciplinary by nature because of the scope of the projects, so I really enjoy the variety of things I get to do.
- If you weren’t in this profession, what would you be?
I'd be a director, screenwriter, or a novelist.
Everything we see is designed, and all of it, good or bad, has something to teach you.
- What’s your favorite place you’ve traveled to?
Homer, Alaska. The smaller airports up there don't have security, which makes you feel like you've slipped back in time.
- What did school actually teach you?
I think what I actually learned in school was to pay attention to the world around me. Not just from a visual standpoint, but also from a philosophical viewpoint. Everything we see is designed, and all of it, good or bad, has something to teach you.
- Who would you change places with for a day?
Ben Brode, former Game Director on the Hearthstone team. It'd just be great to know how that guy thinks.
