1. “I specialize in millennials. I am a curator of cool.”

2. “One of the mistakes I’ve made was doing reality TV. When I was doing Making the Band, nobody understood that I’m an incredible actor. A lot of people think I yell at people and tell them to get cheesecake and that I’m an asshole. Well, I am an asshole sometimes.”

3. “If you are going to advertise to a culture it’s not just about putting up banners – it’s about being in the trenches and being a part of the lifestyle – and not speaking to them, or at them, but with them.”

4. “You can make money but you can’t make time. You have to be honest with yourself. You can’t be scared to chase those dreams.”

5. “Be disruptive. You can’t wait for someone to give you a chance. You can’t wait to be heard. You’ve got to stand up in that motherfucker and start screaming at the top of your lungs and refuse to not be listened to.”
