Young Pros Spotlight
What is your role / current company?
Research Analyst, A+E Networks
When did you join the ARF Young Pros? May 2020
What is your proudest professional accomplishment?
In 2017, I was selected as an IRTS Summer Fellow – a highly competitive fellowship program in NYC designed to shape future media leaders. I will never forget the moment when I found out that I was accepted into the program.
What is your biggest professional challenge?
Watching enough television to constantly stay informed on competitor programming and strategies.
How has being an ARF Young Pro member impacted your career?
I recently joined the ARF Creative Council: New Research Guidelines Working Group as a Young Pros Council Officer and am amazed with all the impactful work that the council has created and will clearly continue to create. I am grateful to connect with all the hard-working people in my council and believe that this opportunity will open a lot of doors for myself and others in the future.
What’s your favorite Young Pros event that you’ve been to?
Unfortunately, I have not attended a Young Pros event (yet!). I just joined the ARF, but I have heard wonderful stories about the Young Pros NYC: Bootcamp. I look forward to attending as many events as I can in the near future
When researching a topic you know nothing about, how do you get started?
First, I like to educate myself on the topic by gathering as many facts and information as possible. Then, I look for articles with different perspectives and opinions on the topic, so that I can begin to form my own opinion about it. Once I have developed an informed opinion, I like to reach out to experts in the field to ask questions and learn as much as possible about the topic from them.
What’s an example of a company/ brand that you think is doing a great job?
A+E Networks! I am so grateful for all the transparency and humanity that my company has shown during this crazy time. The remarkable leadership team has taken extra care of all the employees during this time with mental health support, extra days offs, frequent company updates, etc.
What is your favorite restaurant in your city?
My fiancé and I go to the same Ramen restaurant every single Thursday in Manhattan. It is called Peng’s Noodle Folk, and the waitress already knows our order!
What is your favorite show/program?
I can watch The Office all day, every day! I even dressed up as Dwight Schrute for Halloween last year.
What’s your dream job? (If money was no object, what would you do?)
I would travel the world as a wildlife filmmaker.
