Employee Spotlight: Getting To Know The Leonard’s Team!

Last month I was able to interview two exceptional team members from the Visual and Creative Marketing Department, John Azula and Robert Parker. This awesome duo coordinates with one another on a daily basis, feeding off of each other’s creativity. Together, they have helped transform the Senior Focus campaign into what it is today. Today I am posting the the first part of our interview which was with John! “John is great because he has an eye for merging the visual and audio components. He is very talented in using these inherent skills to make an incredible impact,” says Claudia Dencer, Director of School Relations and Marketing. Check out the full interview!

Happy Wednesday!


1.   What is your name? 

John Michael Azula

2.   Which department do you work in? 

Visual & Creative Marketing

3.   What are some of your daily tasks?

Producing multimedia slide shows, creating presentations and promotional pieces, editing video and digital images. Provide any and all digital content to those who need it.

4.       Here at Leonard’s we capture memories! What is one memory you are glad you captured through photography?

I have taken some really good photos of my little nephew Jackson, who is my best bud in the whole world, throughout the first year and a half of his life and each of those pictures are pretty special to me because they show how much he has grown and how awesome he has become. They have definitely provided my family and I with great memories of the little guy and for that I am very thankful.

5.       What are three words that best describe you?

Crazy, Sexy, Cool

6.       Do you have any special talents?

I play the bass guitar, love to surf.

7.       If you could learn to do anything, what would it be?

I’d really like to learn to speak Spanish better. I’m okay at it, but would definitely love to be completely fluent. I travel a lot with my family and no matter what country we are in or what language is spoken, if you know Spanish, which my father does, you can always find someone to communicate with if you need help. Very beneficial.

8.       If you could meet anyone, living or deceased, who would it be?

I’d like to meet Marvin Gaye. I really love classic soul music, especially the Motown era, and in my opinion nobody did it better than Marvin. He was the greatest.

9.       What is the best part of waking up?

Best part of waking up is knowing that it’s a new day and that you have a fresh start. Whatever happened the previous day doesn’t matter.

10.    Is a picture worth a thousand words?

Rod Stewart basically summed it up when he said, “Every picture tells a story don’t it!”
