Here at Glacier Media, our internal agency ecosystem is made up of 150+ folks.

It’s time for another edition of Team GMD Q&A! It’s kind of like Vogue’s 73 Questions. Instead, it’s in blog form and there are less than 10 questions – because you’re busy and we respect your time.

One thing school taught you and one thing it didn’t:

School taught me that it’s important to keep learning new things. It didn’t teach me about the importance of finding balance in the different areas of your life.
