Q&A with Will Barthel

What is your favorite place in Chicago that isn't a typical tourist destination?

In a city where pizza has a big reputation, Pequod’s Pizza is my #1 favorite.

Would you rather have the office stocked 24/7 with Starbucks coffee or Garrett’s popcorn?

Starbucks! Unless Garrett’s comes up with a caffeinated caramel corn.

If you could live anywhere else in the world, where would you live?


One thing people wouldn't know about you is?

I am a borderline neat freak.

What is the most embarrassing music album you've ever purchased?

"Whoomp! (There It Is)" - The early 90’s was an interesting era.
