How I got into advertising: There isn’t a single moment I can point to and say with confidence: “that is when I knew I wanted to do advertising.” It was a progression – a natural end to the pursuit of my “caterpillar schemes.” (Caterpillar schemes is a phrase – stolen from Michael Chabon’s The Amazing Adventures of Kavelier and Clay – which here means a natural desire to evolve and improve oneself).

WHICH ONE IS IT?
Always be cold or always be hot? Always be cold. Sweat is not attractive and the more layers I have on the more likely I will be wearing SOMETHING fashionable.
Be an apple or banana? Apple. I don’t like bananas – it’s a texture thing.
Be invisible or able to read minds? The obvious question is can I control these powers or am I always invisible or always inundated with peoples’ thoughts? My gut response is invisibility, but if I’m just an invisible man it might be hard to connect with people. Also, I’ve seen movies. It never works out for the person who can read minds – they always learn something they would have rather not known.
See the future or change the past? Change the past. That’s So Raven taught me that there is no changing the future even if you can see it. Maybe with some hindsight (which is always 20-20) I could make some positive tweaks.
Would you rather be super strong or super fast? Super fast. My metabolism would be off the chain and I would eat whatever I wanted!
