Happy Birthday, Tom!

Today marks the last of what has been a birthday-filled February here in the Vision office. Although he is immersed in language on a daily basis, Tom is (ironically) a man of few words… at least when prodded with questions about himself. 🙂 However, despite a busy schedule and a tad of resistance, we managed to snag a few minutes with our resident world-traveler for an interview on his birthday.

What’s your title?

Production Manager

So at VCG, what does that mean?

Proofreading, creating print specs and getting estimates, copywriting, tracking jobs, brainstorming…

What kind of projects do you like to proof?

Interesting subject matter where you learn something new is always good.

Favorite place to travel:

Spain

Do you have a hobby?

Running.

Your bio on the Vision site says you got into advertising as a translator. How many languages do you speak?

French and Spanish.

Which do you prefer: proofreading or copywriting?

I like both.

Are you pro or against the Oxford comma?

Against… but I will enforce it when necessary.

Tell us your favorite item(s) on your desk:

My maneki-neko (beckoning cat)!

 

Thanks for letting us interrupt your day, Tom. Hope you enjoyed your birthday!
