Traffic & Production Manager

You are the unique blend of a Type A tasker when it comes to timeline and budget and an imaginative magician when it comes to creative solutions. A strong critical thinker, you consider all perspectives before making a recommendation. Just as persuasive, you communicate milestones and decisions clearly and concisely, encouraging efficient teamwork. You know the best creative work is done when everyone does their part, and you hold team members fast to their commitments.

Every day presents new problems to be solved, hence you are often the duck–calm and composed on the surface but flashing solutions and options quickly beneath the surface. You are great at deconflicting, as you believe while we must focus on results we must also bring out the best in a team.
