Seattle Interactive Conference is over and I am so exhausted. I got to meet some creative people I really admire, particularly from Wieden + Kennedy and IDEO.

Most importantly, conferences are sometimes the only time I get to see some of my closest friends and an opportunity to introduce them to each other. Along with old friends, I finally got to meet some people for the first time, like Laura Porto, who I’ve been Twitter friends with for four years. I gave her such a big hug when we finally met and didn’t want to let go because I was so happy to finally got to meet her in real life.

It’s back to New York for the next few weeks, and I’m hoping to carry the inspiration I got to my friends there.
