Q&A with Jamie Wisniewski

What is the most satisfying or memorable project you’ve worked on?
My favorite projects are the ones where innovation is at the core. I love questioning the way things work and coming up with new ways of doing things. Maybe it’s the inventor in me. I once won $10K in a Shark Tank-style pitch competition and am working on my pending patent. My entrepreneurial mindset comes in handy at Davis & Company!

Who (or what) inspires you in your work?
Learning—whether from people, places or things.

What’s your go-to app?
Instagram because I’m a visual and creative person.

If you were to choose another profession, what would it be?
I love animals, so probably a veterinarian. Anyone want to foot the med school bill?

What’s one book you think everyone should read?
Rich Dad Poor Dad by Robert Kiyosaki.

What’s your greatest achievement?
Becoming a college professor by age 25.

What’s your favorite communication channel or tool?
I’m old school. The telephone!

What’s your secret for overcoming writer’s block?
Step away and make a cup of coffee. Isn’t that the answer for everything?

Where did you grow up?
Westfield, New Jersey

Where’s the most memorable place you’ve traveled to?
Giraffe Manor in Kenya. It’s a hotel where giraffes roam the grounds and you can feed (and kiss!) them.

What’s your favorite lunchtime meal?
Anything but what I packed.

What’s your favorite word? Why?
Lovely. It’s a “feel good” version of nice.

If you could live inside a television show, which would it be?
Wheel of Fortune so I can win a ton of money. I’m on the audition waitlist, so look out for me!

If you could live in another country, where would you live?
Japan. The people and culture are incredible!

What’s your favorite travel destination?
I have traveled around the world but New Orleans, Louisiana will always be my favorite city.
