For the first time in 20 years, I’ve thought about what I want from my career and consequently, my priorities have shifted. I find myself focusing more on working with people I personally like and professionally respect; with clients that make a positive impact on the world, in an environment where I can bring all my skills, strategic and creative together and not be filtered into one or the other.”
