Leo Q+A: Daniel Spadaro

Leo Q+A is back at it with Daniel Spadaro, strategist to the stars (well, to Special K, at the very least!).

Daniel is the organizer of Well-Dressed Wednesdays, an employee group that takes fashion to the next level each and every hump day (from swaggy scarves to seasonal wear, they've got it covered). Read below for an inside look at Mr. Spadaro's aspirations ("Herrrrrre's Daniel!," anyone?), hear the number one reason why ad folks aren't like the ones you see on TV, and, if you pay close attention, you might see why we think a musical just might be in this young man's future (hint: we'd pay more than tuppence to catch the show).
