Tell us about your role.
I work closely with making sure that we're paying everyone in a timely manner, and also making sure that we are billing back towards projects and making sure that our accounts payable is running as smoothly as possible.
I just have to make sure that I'm available and accessible to everyone in different departments because every department obviously needs help with accounting and finance and everything goes through us. And so just making sure that I'm available for people and ready to help them because not everyone understands finance and accounting.
You’ve been at AGBO for 5 years. How has it changed?
Oh so much. I mean, I think when I started, it was probably like 20 people on the team and now it's like, what, how many people do we have like, 40? And we hadn't released anything. And now we have, like, The Gray Man, which is like, a huge deal on Netflix.
What character in the AGBO universe are you?
Probably Nadia, because she's a badass and she's just like, knows what she wants, and she just goes and gets it, and I think that that's how I am because I like know what I want to do and I want to just go and get it and I'm willing to work hard to get it.
What’s your favorite movie?
Home Alone, hands down. It's like, overall masterpiece.
What’s the best piece of career advice you’ve ever gotten?
