Around the Office with Jay Kurahashi-Sofue

Welcome to our Q&A series where you’ll get a glimpse into each of our associates' days “around the office!" Next up - Jay Kurahashi-Sofue from the OgilvyRED team:

What’s your morning routine?  I wake up at 6:30 to get some personal things done and get to the office by 8:00 to go to the gym. By 9:00 (…sometimes later), I’ll be at my desk.

What makes or breaks your day? Free food will make my day 11 out of 10 times. Conversely, not much will break my day.

When you leave the office early you... Find other friends who are out early to hang out with.

Your desk essential? A photo of Steve Jobs that the previous desk-occupant had left for me.

Favorite place to grab lunch? The Ogilvy Café.

What do you wish someone had told you day one? That enrolling for benefits is not that hard.

What do you love most about the office? The people.

An Ogilvy secret revealed: The perfect way to make Ogilvy coffee is to use exactly one packet.
