Hey that's my picture in the Chicago Tribune!
It's part of a slideshow accompanying an in-depth profile on the Doodle team. Though it's an interview with mostly one member of the team (leader, Ryan Germick), it's well-rounded and thoughtful, and echoes many of the things that drives us creatively as a team and on an individual basis. Also, there are burritos.
And the writer uses Tom Sawyer to describe me.
In a behind-the-scenes discussion about this behind-the-scenes piece (so meta) the writer, Chris Borrelli, answers why it was so important to visit the actual Doodler area to do this piece:
That’s a good question, because this piece could be handled with a Q&A probably. And with a company like Google, you assume you will receive a bare minimum of cooperation, anyway. But they were fairly open to the story, partly because the Doodle team is so unique and what tends to be written about them is superficial and brushes right past the point that these things probably took a team and a lot of time and there’s a story behind the creation of this tiny thing so many people worldwide are seeing everyday.
