When I first moved to Austin, I was still working remotely for an agency back in Pennsylvania. I only knew two Austinites—and only one of them was in the advertising industry. That person was Tom McAdams, and he invited me to come to a board meeting in April. I haven’t missed one since! I decided to make things official because the people are fun and it’s a great way to be involved in the community.
