Q & A with Kevin
1. How long have you been with your employer and/or working in Downtown Lincoln?
I’ve been been working for Carson+Co Global for 9 months, downtown for 7.
2. What is your primary role in the workplace?
I'm the Creative Director at Carson+Co, working with our awesome clients and our great team to make sure we craft distinctive marketing and communications plans and materials that get results.
3. What is your favorite part about working at your company?
We get to meet and partner with people who are working on so many interesting projects and campaigns, all working to make a positive impact on our world and environment. It's energizing, to learn about all of these things, to gain new perspectives, and then to have a chance to help those efforts. That, and we have some pretty good tunes playing in the office, whether on Spotify or on vinyl.
4. What is your favorite place to eat in Downtown Lincoln?
Tough call, but for lunch my go-to is Sultan's Kite. And I have yet to find an ice cream place anywhere else as good as Ivanna Cone.
5. What is your favorite thing to do in Downtown Lincoln?
I love bike rides to the Farmer's Market, and trying new local breweries and beers.
