Part of a recurring series where we ask a Full Contact employee a couple of off-the-wall (and yet revealing) questions.
1. Who are you, and what is your role at Full Contact?
My name is Caroline Aylward, and I am the Production Coordinator here at this fine establishment.
2. Speaking of roles, who is your personal role model? (And tell us why)
I would have to say my Grandpa is my role model, because he is a fantastic roommate. No, not really. He is 85 years old and single and is most definitely the most at-peace person I have ever met. He is genuinely happy. That is the ultimate success in my eyes. His motto is “keep it simple,” and he really sticks to it. I strive to do the same every day.
3. What’s the best piece of advice you ever received (and then ignored)?
“Don’t think about it too much.” Yeah, nice try.
4. If you could magically become anyone else in the world, who would it be and why?
Hmmm. I would like to say the Dalai Lama, but it would be weird to be a dude. However, choosing a female is difficult. Right now, I would have to say Christy Turlington. She is a supermodel, a powerful businesswoman, a mom, an athlete and a philanthropist. Plus, she seems like an all-around down to earth gal. She is also married to Ed Burns, but that has nothing to do with my choice.
5. And while we are imagining things, what is your Full Contact superpower?
I am porous, like a sponge. I soak up everything around me and absorb it for inspiration.
6. We know you do amazing things at Full Contact, but what do you do that’s kind of amazing outside of these four walls?
Film, fashion, music and lifestyle are my passions. My sister and I are joining forces and starting a company that combines as many of these aspects as possible—right now we are focusing on creating fashion films. We are really close so putting our heads together professionally has always been in the cards!

7. And finally, how do you make Full Contact in your job?
I ask everyone questions every step of the way and treat every interaction as a learning experience. No lesson is invaluable!
