Life as we know it changed on March 16th – for our agency that was the first day we went “remote.” Some companies had already started making the transition to WFH the week before and some were still a little behind. Either way, it was one of those moments in time that we will never forget €..

No doubt these are unusual times. My natural life rhythm has been hijacked by a pandemic.
