Today, we have the pleasure of casting our Sonar Spotlight on Joseph Teegardin, an avid Sonar user and the Media Relations Manager of North America for Nike.
My name is Joseph and I live in New York, NY. I love fast cars, quality television series, sneakers, all-things Apple, sports, cocktails, and Americana. I’m fortunate enough that my favorite things in life are a big part of both my professional and personal lives.
What’s your job exactly? That’s quite a long title you have.
I work at one of the most amazing companies in the world - NIKE. I’m a Media Relations Manager for North America. I travel a lot due to my function and I love every second of it.
Nice. What’s your favorite city and why?
New York, NY. It’s home and the best city in the world.
We love it, too. So how do you use Sonar? For personal or professional purposes, or both?
I like Sonar because I can use it for both personal and professional purposes. It’s great here, locally, and professionally when traveling.
When’s the last time you met someone through Sonar? Who was it and where was the run-in?
About a month ago when I was in LA, I was eating at this restaurant with friends when I got notification from Sonar about a connection being close by. The name was really, really familiar but I couldn’t quite place it till it hit me that it was a random Facebook friend from high school. I located them in the restaurant, went up to them and they were shocked. We ended up chatting for a while about what we had been up to and how crazy it was for both of us to be traveling and at the same place that night. That’s the power of Sonar!
