Spotlight: Copywriter Michelle Sullivan

1) Tell us a memorable story from when you were a kid. I’ve only done one really terrible thing in my life. When I was eight, I stole a pumpkin. My friend—we’ll call her Julie—and I took it right off someone’s front porch. This wasn’t a crime of passion, either. It was calculated. We even... Read More

Spotlight: Copywriter George Taliaferro

What was your first guitar? What attracted you to that instrument, specifically? When I was six, I nailed two pieces of wood together in (roughly) the shape of a guitar. I made “tuning” pegs out of nails and wrapped rubber bands around them. I used to run around the house strumming that thing like nobody’s... Read More

Spotlight: Account Executive Stacey Swift

1. How did karaoke competitions change the game for your music career? Well. Tequila induces karaoke. Sisters induce tequila. So, credit goes to my sister. She liquored me up and signed me up to sing one night. The owner approached me afterward and said, “Hey, we’re having a competition starting next week.” I told him... Read More

Tell us a memorable story of yourself when you were a kid. It can be funny, surprising, warm and fuzzy, whatever. Just make it a good one. Fairly short story, but I would say it sums up my childhood pretty well: I loved sledding when I was a kid, and one summer when I was... Read More

Tell us a memorable story of yourself when you were a kid. It can be funny, surprising, warm and fuzzy, whatever. Just make it a good one.

Spotlight: Insight Stream Associate Maureen Hirt

1) Tell us a memorable story of yourself when you were a kid. It can be funny, surprising, warm and fuzzy, whatever. Just make it a good one. Back in the day, I thought I was pretty cool. I played on a softball team when I was younger where the coaches still pitched. When you... Read More

Spotlight: Senior Account Exec Deirdre Heid

1) You went to college in lower Manhattan and then got a job in Cincinnati. What are the top three things you miss most about New York? Is there anything about Cincinnati you actually like better (cost of living does not count)? There are a billion things I miss about NYC, but these would be... Read More

Spotlight: Creative Director Ried Cartwright

1) I’m assuming you’ve been going to Michigan virtually every summer for your entire life. There’s something about it that sucks us in. What is it for you? Well, for starters funny story about the word “assume,” this cop told me this once in Mariemont, “Boy, all that does is make an ass out of... Read More

Spotlight: Michael Cole

1) What is your favorite condiment? Why is it superior to all other condiments, in your opinion? (If you actually hate condiments, explain why, you weirdo.) Is ice cream a condiment? No? Well I have to admit, I’ve bought into the (somewhat) recent guacamole craze. I’m willing to try anything a restaurant serves if it... Read More
