Running a half marathon? Meeting Al Roker? FCB's new head of communications in Chicago answers Five Questions with SCREEN.
SCREEN: Most famous person you’ve ever met?
NUÑEZ: In my past role, I got to meet so many famous folks, so this one is hard. However, as a NY native and Yankees fan, I would have to say Mariano Rivera, (The Sandman and one of the best relief pitchers of all time) was the most meaningful by far. I also loved meeting Al Roker -- so friendly!
SCREEN: Your go-to karaoke song?
NUÑEZ: Right now, it’s “King of Wishful Thinking” by Go West, although this alternates with Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’”
SCREEN: Your greatest sports achievement?
NUÑEZ: Going from not being a runner to running my first half-marathon within a year
SCREEN: Worst job you’ve ever had?
NUÑEZ: I would say scanning documents and then editing them to make sure they were accurate for the web. This was when scanners weren’t all that reliable so it was a LOT of character correction and editing.
SCREEN: If you could appoint ANYONE to be President of the United States, who would it be?
NUÑEZ: I’d swing the other way from the business sector and try my hand at a notable author. Personally, I’d be in awe of someone with a legacy like Maya Angelou – basically someone with a master narrative and vision. What better option than a writer?
SCREEN: Best advice you’ve ever been given?
NUÑEZ: People show you who they are. Believe them.
