Marie-Pierre CapistranOur Creative Team member Marie-Pierre Capistran was at CHA 2014, and every single photo I see makes me smile — not for the product I’m seeing — but because of the smile on her face in every single photo and for the affection I see the “industry-biz” folks showing her. Go, Marie!!!
