Barrett Newell is a Kentuckiana native slowly morphing into a true Chicagoan. He specializes in integrated marketing. However, having come of age during the Myspace era, it’s hard for him to talk about himself in anything other than cryptic song lyrics. (Keep looking up for the ladder!) Tell him about the last great book you read.
