Who: Joshua A. Christie
What: 72andSunny – Rights and Clearance (Business Affairs)
Why: 72andSunny creates cultural impact on behalf of brands. The company is recognized as one of Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies 2015 and is a two-time “Agency of the Year” winner for Advertising Age and Adweek. I went to college (Saint John’s University) to be a criminal attorney and I did a few internships in that field. I found out that it was not for me. I’ve always had a love of music and entertainment so one of my mentor pushed me towards internships with MTV and Warner Music Group.
Once I graduated college I started working my way around the industry (Warner Music, A&E Television, FremantleMedia).
I love what I do because I get all of the analytical/logical side of legal work along with the fun, creative, extroverted side and I actually see and review the media (music, pictures, video).
Where: New York, NY (Big city of dreams)
