Here's a little peek into my daily life because i'm a real person with other passions. My work's in the tabs above. Sanks!  - James


Q: Is it true your parents came here from Poland over 30 years ago and you grew up in one of the most dangerous city in 'Merica?
A: Yup.

Q: Did you enjoy going to the School of Visual Arts and all the sleepless nights that came along with it?
A: Something like that, it paid off immensely.

Q: Does anyone pay you to come up with ideas now?
A: Well it seems I've been getting pay-checks from a company called BBDO NY for the past 4 years and using their facilities, so I'd say.. maybe?

Q: Are you happy with what you've accomplished so far in your career?
A: Things have been great, I've produced integrated campaigns, one which led to a top 10 billboard song, a puppet show, among other things for a wide breath of global clients and non-profits. I've managed to pick up a nice amount of metal, plastic, and wood in advertising and design.

 

Q: What do you do when you're not in the office?
A: I've always been proactive when it comes to other opportunities, I've designed a few products and poster series. I'm currently in talks to teach a new class at SVA which is something i'm thrilled about. I also eat pumpkin brownies. A lot of um.

Q: Do you have a favorite food?
A: Yes.

Q: Anything else you want to try in the near future in terms of career-path?
A: I have strong sense of branding in regards to  design and identity, strategy, and creative direction to where a company should be taking itself and keep moving forward. I haven't found this passion of mine challenged yet and am always looking out for opportunities where I can continue to challenge my thinking.

Q: Why did you to do this in Q&A format?
A: Writing in third-person is awkward.
