Get the Squeeze on Damien O’Mahoney

What is your role, title, and discipline? Project Manager, Creative Service Line

How long have you been with Isobar/Firstborn? It will be 3 years in April

What is your favorite aspect of your job? It has to be the people and the teams I work on. Everyone brings so much creativity and energy I do feel like I learn something new everyday, or find a new perspective on a process or task that I can use to improve the job that I do.

Take us through your WFH routine. My WFH routine needs structure so I usually start the day with a very large coffee while I catch up on emails and IMs, and create a list of tasks for the day to track my highest priority items and follow ups. I try to take a break to get outside and walk at least once during the day to step away from my laptop.

What was your most interesting job before you joined Isobar/Firstborn? Just after graduating I worked in bar in Cork City, Ireland for a year, that was a very different but very enjoyable experience and it had a great live music schedule which I loved.

Most interesting fun fact about you? The year I got married, my wife and I also attended 15 other weddings in 4 different countries (Ireland, England, France and the US). It was a lot, but it was a really amazing year of travel and a great experience!

What TV show are you currently binging? Re-binging Friday Night Lights while I wait for more episodes of Wandavision

Soundtrack of your life? Rock /Indie Rock

What is your guilty pleasure? Fried chicken (always better if it’s buffalo)

What is #1 on your bucket list? To one day travel around South America

Best quarantine activity, hobby, or skill you picked up? My Peloton is probably the only thing keeping me active during quarantine. I have been improving my pizza making skills, and I also recently moved so assembling flat pack furniture is my only ‘hobby’ right now.

Summer or Winter? I live in New England so I love the Fall, its the perfect temperature and its not snowing yet.
