“It’s hard to find the level of character and talented individuals that you find in your average class at Mark Day. Now being in a professional environment where I encounter that every day, it’s not something that feels overwhelming or that I feel unprepared for, it’s something that I grew up doing because all of my classmates were incredible human beings…The idea of doing that with people that I really enjoy and like being around is very much an attempt to try and recreate a Mark Day experience in the professional world.”
