Brian Kirshner

Summer Intern

Why did you pick this profession?

I chose marketing as a career path because I always found it very interesting and rewarding to work with various clients to help them meet their different needs. No client or project is the same, therefore my days are always unique, and I consistently look forward to coming into work. The ability to be able to help a client increase sales or grow their brand makes working in marketing so satisfying.

What’s your favorite hobby and why?

My favorite hobby is definitely golfing. It’s unlike any other sport because you are playing against yourself and there is no other team or referee involved. It’s also extremely rewarding to play a great round because the sport is so difficult, with every little mistake adding up.

What famous person (dead or alive) would you like to meet and what would you say?

If I could meet one person dead or alive it would be John F. Kennedy. It was such a tragedy that his life was cut so short. I would ask him if he believed his assassination was a conspiracy or if he ever would ever have invaded Vietnam.

What was your first concert and do you still listen to their music?

The first concert I ever went to was Frank Ocean, and yes, I do still listen to his music.

What actor/actress would play you in a movie and why?

The actor that would best play me in a movie would most likely be Max Greenfield. People always tell me that I remind them of the characters he plays and we kinda look alike.

How would you describe your work at JFG as it relates to customers?

My primary role as it relates to customers at JFG is to conduct background research and present my findings. This is done to help the firm make more informed decisions in our marketing efforts to meet our clients’ goals.
