Meet the Pod. Ladies and gentlemen, Allegra Sunday.
What do you do here?
My title is Business Affairs, but I’m also the Office Manager along with being an Assistant Account Executive, amongst other things.
Emoji or Gif that would best describe you?
I don’t really know why, it’s just like “Hey! I’m here!” That’s the one I always use.
The Escape Pod declares a surprise day off, what are you doing?
Probably, go for a run. Because I don’t have time to do that in my free time. I’d probably meet some friends downtown for lunch. Maybe go to the Science and Industry Museum. Or Field Museum. After, I’d probably go for a drink and hangout.
What is your favorite part of working here?
You don’t really feel like you’re going to work. It’s very open and very comfortable. There’s all this energy that comes with it and all the interesting people.
Do you have a favorite thing at your desk?
I love my standing desk. I’m never sitting down. But also the calendar I have. Each month is specific to an Illinois artist. My dad gave it to me because he’s an artist. And his month was January. So I thought that was pretty cool.
Do you have a favorite drink from beer club?
Probably the Caipirinhas that Gloria made. They were my favorite drink. They’re made with sugar cane rum, regular sugar cane and fresh limes. And that’s all it is.
If you weren’t working in advertising, what else would you be doing?
What I first wanted to be was some sort of activist. I wanted to go underdeveloped countries and build water systems and schools, whatever they needed. Something like the Peace Corps.
Do you care to offer an opinion about the foosball table?
I love the foos. I don’t really have a preference between playing front or back. I don’t have a strong hit, so I’m really just there as a guard. So I’m probably best in the back. It’s a nice break in the day.
Was this enjoyable?
This interview? Yeah.
Anything else on your mind? Anything else you want to tell the world?
I don’t know. I’m going to be real cheesy. Life is what you make it. Give the energy you want in the world.
Nice. Cool. Thank you for doing this.
