Behind the Design: Joe McAndrew

We’re so excited to welcome our new digital marketing specialist!

Hi, I am Joe McAndrew and I am the new Digital Marketing Specialist at Sparq Designs.  I attended the University of Dayton, and I was born and raised in the Pittsburgh region.  Before working at Sparq Designs, I was a Senior Account Manager at Avanti Consulting Group.  My goal is to continue to bring quality clients to Sparq Designs to help their business’ build a strong digital presence.  In my free time, I like to golf, go to Pirates games and spend time with my family.

Q: Give us some insight into your morning routine!
A: I get up, I shower, I come to work, I drink Coffee.

Q: Three apps that help with your work…ready go!
A: Most of my work is building relationships, LinkedIn, Facebook and Google help me do this.  My job is to find those who need apps, not those who already have them.

Q: What music do you listen to while you’re working?
A: I enjoy all kinds of music, I switch around from artists like Kid Cudi to Tom Petty to The Lumineers, it honestly just depends on my mood.

Q: What’s your dream job (besides working at Sparq =])
A: Retirement? Only 40 more years!

Q: If you could sit down and have an hour-long conversation with any person alive or deceased who would it be?
A: John F. Kennedy.  I admire what he believed in, the vision he had for society and his dedication to the people.  I admire his fight for the working man and am fascinated by the political drive he had to help others.  I would love to take an hour and learn what he must have known.

Q: Who is your idol in the business world? Why?
A: There are so many good businessmen out there, I don’t know who I’d pick.  But, I truly support those who want to give back, who care about their workers and give a living wage.  I am tired of CEO’s stripping workers of their rights, outsourcing jobs and destroying the middle class for their greed, my Idols in the business world are those who do the right thing.
