40 QUESTIONS WITH: ROSS GREEN

 
 

We’d like to announce that we officially have another person in the office from out of state—the first in a long time (83% of us are Californian). Our account intern, Ross hails from Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where he also went to school (#rolltide). He moved from Alabama to Los Angeles and then to San Francisco, and is really enjoying SF’s current break from the rain as it’s great for his hiking hobby (he’d max out his credit cards at REI).

When Ross isn’t interning, you can catch him on a mountain or reading data journals and articles. Ask him about going to Mars… or the book he just finished, Between the Word and Me. He also plays the piano and guitar. If he wasn’t in PR, he thinks being a traveling musician would be a great alternative. And no need to worry about your movie theater arm rests with Ross; he doesn’t go to the movies enough to have a preference.
