The team here at Column Five is made up of some very special people. They come from all walks of life. They’re creative, and they work very hard. They’re also very interesting. One staff member a week will be profiled on our blog, from our oldest producer to our newest designer, to introduce the people behind the projects.

Hopefully Nico is stuck in your head now, too.
