Roger FriedensenBy Gini Dietrich

Roger Friedensen and I were trying to remember when we first met—IN REAL LIFE.

Though he is much, much, MUCH older than me, we figured it had to have been a good 10 years ago.

Before this blog existed. Before Twitter existed. Before any of us knew our lives would change because of the web.

He is the co-founder of Forge Communications in Raleigh (RTP, to be exact).

Before co-founding that agency, Roger worked at Epley Associates, Inc. and its successor, The Catevo Group.

And I’ve known him as long as all of that!

Roger is a professional guitarist and you will get a taste of that in today’s Inquisition.

But before I give you that, I will brag on him a little bit and say that he has released two CDs with his band, Mishpacha.

I mean, how freaking cool is that?

Ladies and gents, Roger Friedensen…

The Spin Sucks Inquisition

I asked Roger the normal questions (which you can find below):

  • Tell us who you are and what you do.
  • What is the biggest mistake you’ve made in the past six months?
  • What is one of the biggest trends you’ll be using this year?
  • What is one thing about yourself that would surprise most people?
  • What is the best book you’ve read in the last six months?
  • What is your latest Netflix binge?
  • The Five Second Rule.
  • Where can people find you online?

Now that you’ve met Roger, it’s time to get your fingers warmed up and start clicking.

And, before I hand the floor over to you, he asked me to tell you, “May the forge be with you.”
