Welcome to the Team: Andrea Brown Edition
So, Andrea Brown — that’s a fairly common name. Maybe too common. Is it fake?
Yes. I’m in the witness protection program. If anyone asks, I have nooooo idea who killed Tupac.
Don’t worry, no one will see this interview.
Are you related to James Brown? Jackie Brown? What’s your favorite color? What is your favorite Cleveland football team?
I am not, but I think that if James Brown and Jackie Brown were to reproduce…I am what you would get. As for football, I prefer to keep my allegiances private…for my safety and that of my family (but there may or may not be a Terrible Towel hanging in my office come football season).
*Editor’s note: Andrea did not provide an answer to “What’s your favorite color?” thereby indicating to us, and the world, that she in fact, has no favorite color.
When is your birthday and what embarrassing thing about you can we ice on a cake?
February 5, whatever year makes me eternally 29. And why on earth would I tell you that?
So, you share a birthday month with Paul, John and Brad — that makes one less cake we need to get. Thank your parents for us.
What brought you to 427 — besides the extravagant pay check, two day work weeks and free kittens (we don’t have any of those things here, by the way)?
Time to get serious…that’s easy. There is crazy talent here. CRAZY talent. And I had to be a part of it.
So you think we’re crazy?
My suspicions have been confirmed.
Now that you’re our new Account Executive, can you tell us exactly what an “account executive” does every day? Because I don’t think anyone here knows.
I have no idea, either, that’s why I changed the title to Client Service + Business Development (Brad said Sr. VP of Awesomeness was a little over the top).
If you were casting “427 Design 2: Lost in New York”, who would play you?
Betty White. Duh.
Were you nervous about occupying an office whose previous occupants have included a web programmer and a Sam Karlo?
No one told me that this was Sam Karlo’s office? That explains all the porn… At least the programmer was smart enough to wipe the system clean.
Do you have any advice for aspiring “account executives” out there, currently coveting your job?
Marry for money. Work for love.
Who is your favorite Golden Girl, and why?
I cannot possibly pick one. Its like asking me which color of M&M tastes better. Each they are all equally awesome!
Did you eat my lunch?
Nope, it was Joe. I saw him do it. And he said he is not afraid of you.
He should be.
