Occupation Digital media supervisor for Hill Holliday
Residence North End
Coming from Los Angeles, how did your style change when you started working in Boston?
In Boston, people are really preppy and tend to dress similarly. I work in the Financial District now, and it seems like everyone is wearing khakis and a blue shirt. I didn’t want to lose my California roots, but I stayed open. My style is really a mash-up of the two.
You work in social media and are very active on Pinterest. How does that show up in your style?
When Pinterest came along, it was kind of a cool way to see what everyone else was wearing. It was cool to pick different pieces that other people wear and then bring them into my wardrobe.
Men in ad sales today are obviously not Don Draper-types, but is there a newer look you think the industry has developed?
The people in my office are very fashionable. Just walking around the office, I get inspired by the people around me. When you work in a creative field, it inspires you to bring creativity to life. — R.R.Interview has been condensed and edited. E-mail comments to firstname.lastname@example.org.
