I was very spoiled at Nabisco

I worked as a photographer for Nabisco in Parsippany NJ from 1989-2000 (Kraft bought us then and I worked there until 2004). This is an image of my studio within the corporate offices. You have to realize that the rule everyone followed was: no personal images within your cube. Looking back, I think I did everything I could to see if I could piss off the bosses but I never could. I grew a pony tail for a while, wore cowboy boots every day and covered every square inch of wall with images. I never heard a word from anyone... until Kraft bought us. While Nabisco was a wonderful creative company, Kraft was a process driven machine. All this fun went away when Kraft moved us to the main building and put the hammer down. Those were 10 great years and we all had nothing but fun.
