“Understanding brands and understanding businesses is ultimately about understanding people.”

 

Carol Turturro
Account Director
In a former life, I was a TV and radio news reporter who somehow got swept away into advertising, some I’ll-never-tell years ago. Along the way, I’ve been a playwright and a microbiologist, helping to make strep detection faster. Calling on my theatre background, I like to look at an advertising project in a way I like to call, “method advertising”; kind of like “method acting.” Whenever I can, I like to really experience the product so that I’m not selling it, but telling people about my incredible experience with it.
