We’re very excited to welcome Mike Nourie to the Racepoint family! Get to know our newest PR pro in this intimate Q&A.
1. How would you describe what you do for work in 3 sentences or less to your 7 year old niece?
I would tell her that I work for a company that helps other companies get their ideas and products into newspapers and magazines. I also help make sure that no one says anything mean about my clients
2. What is the last book you read?
Sleepwalk with Me by Mike Birbiglia (one of the funniest books I’ve read in a while). Currently reading Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk.
3. Have you in the past or would you ever bungee jump or sky dive?
I love the idea of bungee jumping and sky diving, but I am extremely scared of heights and think I would chicken out at the last minute. I have jumped off of a 60 foot cliff before though, so who knows!
4. What are your favorite smells?
Bacon and a freshly opened can of tennis balls.
5. If you could go out to dinner/have a golf foursome with any three people, dead or alive, who would you choose?
Oh geez, that’s tough… I think I would have to say John McEnroe, Bobbie Clarke, and Jackie Robinson – some of the best sports personalities of all time.
6. What is your favorite YouTube video of all time?
My videos! Just kidding… funny video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X6XBqOdUtiM&list=FLBJrYYbfPRL-pxYkHoMV39Q&index=3 Music video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ryq_NaO_eXw
7. What are three things you cannot live without?
Tennis, music, and steak.
8. If you were an animal, what would you be?
I think it would be cool to be a shark, but probably a dog (hopefully a pug).
9. What are your favorite sports teams?
Phillies, Flyers, Sixers and Patriots, but I also like the Red Sox.
10. Any hidden talents/interesting hobbies/fun facts?
I like to write and play music, but haven’t written anything in a while. I have also been given 3 signed skateboards by Tony Hawk all because of twitter.
