The family has gotten just a bit bigger here at JP Marketing! Joining us are Nicole Maul as an Account Assistant and Jason Robbins as a Web Developer/Designer. We could tell you that between the two of them they have an immense amount of experience, guided by their passion for their respective fields, or that they are loaded with bright and unique ideas for our clients (which they are all of those things!), but that would be too easy, right?
We asked Jason and Nicole the hard-hitting questions to really get to know them better. Let’s get down to the nitty gritty and see what our newest employees are all about.
Favorite part of the creative process?
JR: Research & development. Exploring new ways of looking at things.
NM: I really enjoy the research aspect. It gives you a chance to learn things you may not have known before and that’s exciting.
You’re competing on a reality or game show. Which one are you starring in?
JR: “Face Off.” I’d finally have my chance to show those newbs how it’s done. 🙂
NM: “Jeopardy,” totally. It’s not because I have a genius-level IQ or anything, but seriously I love that show. You could win some serious money on there!
What are you most looking forward to in your new role?
JR: I’m excited to help shape the evolution of our web and digital offerings. Also, creating a more immersive and dynamic customer experience for our clients.
NM: I love that there are so many different opportunities to work on something new. It’s a great time to be a part on the social media scene, and clients can really grow their businesses though social.
JR: Ice cream. The best is when it’s vanilla bean topped with chocolate and peanut butter.
NM: I’m not much of a chocolate person (gasp!), which I feel like cuts down on dessert options. My favorite for sure is cheesecake. It’s the bomb.
What is the first thing you would buy if you won the lottery today?
JR: 1967 Pontiac GTO — too many bells, whistles and horses to list off.
NM: I would want to buy something really ostentatious and over the top, but let’s be real, I think I would talk myself out of that. Maybe a sweet new ride? That actually sounds good to me.
What advice would you give yourself when you were first starting your career?
JR: Keep an open mind to everything. Remove “no” and “I can’t” from your vocabulary.
NM: Be patient and don’t give up. It’s easier to complain and want to take the simple route, but hard work always pays off in the end. Also, it’s okay to lean on your friends for support, that’s what they’re there for!
