Ferrari Public Affairs
How did you first get into your profession?
A fraternity brother of mine helped me secure an internship in the 1995 Legislative Session, and I graduated from the University of Nevada in December of 1996. I then got a job as a junior legislative analyst for a full-time gig in the 1997 Legislative Session. From there, my buddy Pete Ernaut recruited me to be part of Kenny Guinn’s campaign team and administration. The rest is history.
What business advice would you give someone just starting in your industry?
Do it! Take an entry level opportunity and grow it into opportunities you never imagined. Also, embrace constructive criticism but define your own capabilities.
What was the toughest lesson you’ve learned in your career?
The importance of having the courage to stand strong in the face of unwavering opposition and criticism from your peers. Sometimes you just have to go it alone.
