Book That Best Describes Your Life
“Catch 22” by Joseph Heller. Did you know he invented that phrase? He considered several numbers but landed on 22. What a legacy.

Happy Place in Nashville
I freaking love Shelby Bottoms. I walk the dogs, run, play games with the kids… But my favorite thing to do is walk the trails at night on a full moon. There’s just enough light to see the way, but it’s dark enough to focus on the sounds and feel.


 

All About Henry

Where were you born?
Louisville KY. Grew up in the sticks though.

What is the most frustrating question, comment, or feedback you get related to work?
I don’t get frustrated with much regarding my work. Clients should question everything. It gives me the opportunity to prove worth/value.

What was the first thing you failed at?
Personally, my first marriage I guess. That was an expensive failure. I’m better at my second marriage. I fail as a father daily, but I’m also pretty good. Professionally, I made serious personal investment to launch a business but didn’t push my partners on their commitment. Because everyone could (and eventually did) step away, it was easy to lose focus. I should have demanded more, planned better, and taken control rather than letting go. That said, I’m surprisingly happier now. So, there’s that.

If you could do anything else besides advertising, what would it be?
I do a lot besides advertising. I write for a magazine. I shoot videos for local businesses. I parent. I travel. I play music. I have an amazing life.

What is the best memory you had from your childhood?
Playing with stompers with my brothers under the huge tree in the back yard. We’d lay in the grass to be eye level with the little trucks. We got dirty and drifted into our imaginations.

Who is your favorite fashion designer?
Tom Ford

What do you look forward to the most every day?
Sunshine and the unknown.

If you had to choose between driving a 1996 light blue Ford Taurus and living in Omaha Nebraska for the rest of your life, which one would you choose?
I drove an 85 Ford Taurus sedan and, later, a station wagon. Both were maroon. Both were terrible. Both did the same as any other car I have ever driven. Honestly, unless it’s a classic, badass car, I just don’t care about cars. So, give me Omaha. Give me the home of Warren Buffet, big-ass steaks, and midwestern sensibilities. I bet the houses are cheaper than those in East Nashville anyway.
