What do you do in your new position at Mertz Design Studio?
I'm a part of a multi-disciplined team of designers with experience in computer animation, motion graphics, video compositing, product development and exhibit design. My role on the team consists primarily of conceptualizing ideas with my teammates and then bringing our concepts to life through motion graphics and computer animation, and storyboard illustration.
 
What do you like best about this job?
Every day I get to collaborate with an extremely talented group of people to create all kinds of different design projects. I love the variety of work we do and being able to tackle new things while flexing my creative muscle in the process. From conceptualizing and storyboarding narratives, to animating videos for online and broadcast, the wide breadth of projects I get to do—and the people I get to do them with—makes it so I’m always learning something new. 
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Our office is in the Pendleton neighborhood, which is currently going through a lot of positive changes, and that’s cool to see. Plus, working so close to downtown and Over-the-Rhine means that there are plenty of good places to grab lunch or a drink after work. 

What part of town do you live in and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
My wife and I currently live in the Woodlawn area, and when I-75 is behaving, my drive to work is pretty easy. I like being not too far away from a lot of the nightlife and restaurants in Cincinnati. And one of the benefits of living in this area is that I do my weekly grocery shopping at Jungle Jim’s, where I get to indulge my Wisconsin roots with a wide variety of beer and cheese.

What do you do in your new position?
I'm a part of a four-person content team that writes and edits all the articles and blog posts for SparkPeople, the most active healthy lifestyle site on the web. We develop new targeted content centers, write posts about the latest fitness and nutrition news, and stay in touch with our audience through social media.
 
What do you like best about this job?
I've been on a very long journey of weight loss and healthy living for the past several years. Working at SparkPeople helps keep me committed to my goals. I use all the tools on the website to track my fitness and food. I even use The Spark, which is our brand new activity tracker. You just clip it to your shoe and it keeps track of steps and exercise minutes. It even knows if I've been for a walk or on the elliptical or using a stationary bike.

Whenever I have a question about how to do a particular exercise or how to stretch a sore muscle, I just hop onto the site and find the answer. It's kind of amazing!

SparkPeople is a small company and it feels like I go to work with a bunch of friends every day. I haven't even been there for six months yet and I already feel like I'm a part of a family. 
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Cincinnati is an easy city to live in. I have a very short commute and, even once our office moves downtown, it still won't be bad.
 
What part of town do you live in and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
Madisonville. I have wonderful, friendly neighbors and I love to walk my dogs around the hilly streets and through neighboring Mariemont

Thadd Fiala

Jobs powered by GigitJobs.com

Thadd Fiala, Senior Designer at Deskey, was named after a character from a western TV show from the 1970s. It’s an especially apt name, because Thadd approaches every design choice by establishing fresh thinking on a new frontier. Having worked at Fifth Third Bank, LPK and a variety of other shops, Thadd has a breadth of experience that helps break through creative boundaries. Thadd chose to work at Deskey for its smaller, more family atmosphere, and the opportunity to get his hands dirty on as many brands as he can.

“Thadd brings a calm, calculative approach to both his craft and his interaction,” says Creative Director Matthew Baughan.

What do you do in your new position at Grandview Tavern & Grill?
Manage day-to-day culinary operations, menu development, inventory, ordering of food and supplies, food and labor cost control, and event planning for off-site catering events.

What do you like best about this job?
I’m excited about getting back into the restaurant scene after a few years in aviation catering. It’s an independently owned restaurant, which allows a chef to showcase his or her vision and allows autonomy and freedom in menu development. While Grandview is an established, well-respected dining option already, there is always room to improve and ensure great dining experiences for our guests. The concept is the best of both worlds, in my opinion. The bar and cocktail areas are lively and inviting with great gastro pub-style offerings, while the dining rooms are subdued with white tablecloths and professional service. 

What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
There is nowhere better to raise a family than in Cincinnati and its surrounding suburbs. The revitalization of the city’s core is exciting, and is revitalizing both the city and the culinary scene. We’re a big league city with a small town feel. It’s more likely for strangers to have three degrees of separation, as opposed to the six degrees usually referenced. People are good to each other, and sometimes polite to a fault. It is a great time to be a Cincinnatian.

What part of town do you live in and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
My wife and I live in Madeira with our two children. I attended Madeira High School, and we always knew that we wanted to return when we could. The schools are excellent, with teachers and administrators who truly care about the students, and the residents look out for each other. We are insulated from most of the drawbacks of living in a metropolitan area, but are a short drive from the city’s core when we want to have a night out. Madeira is known as “The Bubble” amongst its residents, and many who leave after high school often find themselves back to raise their families.

What do you do in your new position at the Cincinnati Development Fund?
My primary responsibilities include all CDF communication including our website, press releases, public relations, event planning, grant writing, tax credit applications, and implementing a new social media presence, e-mail newsletter and online video channel. I'm also the in-house technology consultant and oversee the organization's information technology equipment and network, recommend changes to software and hardware, plus hire outside consultants to help with the same. I oversee the administrative operations, including recommendations for implementing technology and other, less technical, methods to improve office efficiencies.
 
What do you like best about this job?
CDF is a great organization with a great history. We are about to begin our 25th year and have a long trail of amazing projects impacting just about every city neighborhood. When traditional lending cannot accommodate projects able to transform neighborhoods and galvanize bigger investments, CDF steps in to make dreams and hopes reality. You may not know it, but you have seen CDF's humble touch all across this town. Getting to be a small (and new) part of this growth, re-birth and rejuvenation in the city's vast urban infrastructure fits my personality perfectly and quenches this old reporter's curiosity and desire to know what's happening months—and sometimes years—before it actually happens. Keeping Cincinnati moving forward is a big reward working at CDF.
 
What's great about living/working in Cincinnati? 
Cincinnati is special. There's just no question about it. The biggest small town in the world, I think, with just about everything the big town has to offer, in a neat, easy-to-digest package. But the best part has to be the people: We love our town. It's apparent in how critically we debate important civic issues. Covering politics, I was always amazed at how passionate citizens—even ones who live way beyond the city limits—feel about things that may not directly effect them. It's amazing how seemingly the whole town comes out for the Opening Day parade for a baseball team whose season hasn't even begun. How we share the pride in places like Union Terminal or our world-class zoo and laude our connection to and shake our heads in disbelief when we tout our connections to Jerry Springer and Pete Rose. And we may not all agree on which exactly which taste we love the most, but everyone agrees: To be here is to love the chili. Few other places can bind themselves together socially like Cincinnatians can to each other. Just run into one somewhere far from town, and you'll see the instant connection and love for this place. It's truly remarkable.
 
What part of town do you live in and what do you most like about the neighborhood in which you live? 
I live in Mount Auburn on the cusp of Over-the-Rhine. My favorite part of Mount Auburn is the amazing view off my back balcony of Over-the-Rhine, downtown and Price Hill. Plus, the nationally recognized Christ Hospital a few steps from my front door, the birthplace of a U.S. president is equally as close. Plus, it's very affordable and close to where I work in Over-the-Rhine.

Jacki Jing Hired As FOX19 Morning News Anchor

The FOX19 Morning News has announced that Jacki Jing will join longtime anchor Rob Williams in co-anchoring the FOX19 Morning News, weekdays from 4:30 a.m. until 9 a.m. 

Jing comes to Cincinnati from Denver, where she reported and anchored for KDVR/KWGN-TV's morning news. "Jacki is a fun and exciting person to be around, her energy is contagious," says FOX19 General Manager Bill Lanesey. "She is the perfect fit for our morning newscast." 

Jing is a Binghamton University graduate, where she played Division I NCAA Volleyball. Jing began her career as a reporter in Binghamton, NY. She then became a morning news anchor at WWLP in Springfield, Mass., where she won the Associated Press Award for her coverage of the Springfield tornado in 2011. 

She also won an Emmy Award in 2013 for her coverage of the Aurora Theater Shooting in Colorado. "Journalists are asked to wear many hats, particularly in the morning," says FOX19 News Director Kevin Roach. "Jacki strikes the right balance between being a strong serious journalist, while also the kind of person who will put a smile on your face in the morning." 

"I am so excited about moving to Cincinnati," Jing says. "I felt an instant connection with this city the first time I visited. From seeing the magnificent skyline while driving down the cut in the hill to meeting Rob (Williams), Frank (Marzullo) and Denise (Johnson), everything just clicked for me. The whole morning team has been great—I feel like I've known them for years already." 

Jingi's first day as Rob William's co-anchor on the FOX19 Morning News will be in November.
