Get the Squeeze on Claire Mirisola

What is your role, title, and discipline? Lead Copywriter, Creative

How long have you been with Isobar/Firstborn? 2 Years!

What is your favorite aspect of your job? I love that I get to do the impossible every day. There’s always a new challenge or problem to solve.

Take us through your WFH routine. I get up every morning and give my dog, Biscuit, a treat before doing anything. Working from home means that I can spend the time I’m normally on the subway riding my Peloton (Total Quarantine Purchase!) and calling my mom. She lives in Paris so my morning is her late lunch.

What was your most interesting job before you joined Isobar/Firstborn? My first job was as a character in costume at FAO Schwarz, an iconic New York toy store. I was Nurse Claire and I helped kids adopt their baby doll out of a real nursery. It was like Cabbage Patch without the garden.

Most interesting fun fact about you? I earned my first paycheck as a model for Pampers. I kept modeling until I was 7 when I told my mom I would rather be reading.

What TV show are you currently binging? Lupin and Great Canadian Baking Show. We ran out of Great British Baking Show.

What is your guilty pleasure? McDonald’s and Diet Coke.

What is #1 on your bucket list? Moving back into Manhattan. It’s where I grew up and I miss the energy.

Best quarantine activity, hobby, or skill you picked up? I suddenly have a green thumb and haven’t killed a plant yet. (Knocks on wood.)
