McCanners of MPLS | Sten Johnson

Welcome to another series of McCanners of MPLS, where we feature the great people that help make up our agency.

How long have you been at McCann and what do you do here? I am an Associate of Marketing Performance, and I’ve been at McCann for about a month now. My job is to take the scattered information we get from all over the place and turn it into useful charts, graphs, and insights.

What is the fanciest thing you’ve ever done? I once enjoyed a fine two course meal in a quiet Italian restaurant while in Florence. At the end thought I accidently poured my olive oil into my wine glass which made things a bit less fancy.

What are you currently obsessed with? My current obsession has to be the work of the McElroy brothers, they make some incredibly funny podcasts every week.

Iced coffee or hot coffee? From where? Honestly not really a coffee drinker, my beverage of choice for all occasions though is an Arizona Arnold Palmer.

What was the weirdest Halloween costume you’ve ever worn? I was once Gimli the dwarf from Lord of the Rings!

What would be your last meal? Something super decadent like crab/lobster or a really great steak.

Who is the most glamorous person you have ever met? Got to work with the Olympic Gold Medalist swimmer David Plummer while at the U of M.

Which talent would you most like to have? Definitely the ability to sing. I am horribly tone-deaf so I think it would be fun to be able to belt out some actually on-key notes.

What do you consider your greatest achievement? Probably helping lead a part of production for the 2018 Warrior Games in Colorado Springs. Incredible experience and something I’m very proud to have been a part of.

Favorite restaurant in MPLS? Fancy dinner night? It’s Salut. Wanna enjoy something delicious at a fun spot? Betty Danger’s Country Club.

What is the dumbest way you’ve been injured? I once went up for a belly five with a friend without realizing I was under a door frame, smacked my head right on the bottom of it.
