Michael Wood, Account Executive – Boston
Tell us three fun facts about yourself.
- I’m an avid photographer and love taking photos of landscapes, action sports, and the night sky. Currently perfecting my Milky Way shots.
- I love the cold, winter, and snowboarding. Before moving to Boston I spent 8 years working at ski resorts in my home state of Vermont.
- Even though I was born in Massachusetts, I’m not a Red Sox or a Patriots fan. But, I do love the Bruins, and one time I got to meet a few of them!
I actually never intended to go into PR. Growing up I always wanted to be a professional athlete. When that didn’t work out, I realized I enjoyed the creative aspects of writing and public speaking. Fast forward a few years and now I’ve come to the realization that I love crafting a company’s message and enhancing its digital presence. PR allows me to not only promote a brand through creative writing and digital media, but also develop interesting and helpful content to better connect with customers and help a company grow.
What made you select PAN? Initial impressions so far?
PAN presented a unique opportunity to be part of a mid-sized agency experiencing rapid growth, and it was in an industry I’m passionate about. Additionally, I wanted to work in a place with a sharp and enthusiastic team, and a fast and fun company culture. So far, PAN fits that bill, and I’m excited to share my enthusiasm with my new team!
Where can we find you on the weekends?
When I’m not in the office, you’ll find me on the hunt for adventure and fresh air. I enjoy golfing, hiking, waist-deep powder, a great IPA, pickup football games, and working on my photography skills.
