The uncommon agency for the common good

Nino.Associate Media Director

When you were 10 years old, what did you want to be when you grew up?

A paleontologist

A social cause you care deeply about and why?

I’ve been a consistent member of the San Diego Zoo since I was a kid, and am a big supporter of San Diego Zoo Global. I also love the work of Big Brothers and Big Sisters of San Diego County, and used to chair a networking group that funded their efforts in college.

If you could earn a living doing anything else, what would it be?

Probably something in the field of psychology, sociology, or urban planning—I like learning how people think and the patterns they fall into.

You can invite 3 people from either present day or history to break bread with, who would it be and why?

• Leonardo DaVinci because I’d like to learn how he thought in such an advanced way for his time.
• Madeleine Albright to hear her stories about mediation and diplomacy, especially since she had such a turbulent early life.
• Both Sophie and Tucker from Sofi Tukker (I know that’s cheating), because I they seem like the most easy-going people, and their music is great.

In 5 words, describe yourself? (must use all 5….no more…no less)

Quad shot espresso, venti cup.
