Q: What’s your role at PLAY? A: I let people know how PLAY can help develop and grow their business. Our awesome team creates things that grab attention and produce results.

Below: Rooney's first painting, Nebraska Wesleyan mug, REF 534 hair cream, metal beard comb, iPad 2 16GB, iPhone 4S 32GB, Apple ear buds, Gerber Artifact Multitool Key Chain, Movie Poster by Claudia Varosio. Q: What would you say...you do here? A: The billet is 'Business Development.' My main priorities are to ensure that the company achieves the financial and growth goals. This includes setting internal procedures and creating new ways to create partnerships and revenue streams. Without a dedicated account manager, I mostly fulfill that role in ensuring that we continue great relationships, our clients are happy and we are constantly exploring new partnerships and applicable markets. When I was hired, Aaron Petersen told me that PLAY prides itself in 'doing cool sh** and generating money.' I do my best to continue that. Q: What do you like to do in your spare time? A: I spend as much time as I can at home. Spending time with my wife Jessica and daughter Rooney is often hard with my schedule. Whenever there is a break in my schedule I focus on them. For leisure, I spend time remodeling our new home, experimenting with smoker recipes, digging for music and reading. [...]
