Geoffrey Fuglaar

If you’re not from New Orleans, but want to fit right in, it helps to play an instrument. A native of Birmingham, Alabama, Geoffrey ended up in New Orleans by way of the LSU marching band, where his musical skills landed him a full scholarship. Yes, he was part of the magic that happens on Saturday night in Death Valley every fall.

After graduation, Geoffrey stayed in Baton Rouge, cutting his teeth in the advertising biz before coming to New Orleans full-time as a media planner/buyer in the local agency scene. In the Crescent City, he was able to dive deeper into the media landscape and see all aspects of research, planning and buying under one roof. His advertising experience includes a wide variety of industries including tourism, finance, food & beverage, and higher education.

A self-described jack of all media trades, Geoffrey brings to Morgan & Co. strong planning and buying experience in both traditional and non-traditional media. His responsibilities include analyzing client and market research, and campaign performance, all to build a smart media strategy that helps brands engage their audiences.

Geoffrey has a B.S. in Business Management from LSU and is firmly planted in the Mid-City neighborhood in both work and play. He’ll be the first to admit that he has a fairly boring life outside of work. But to us, we think he’s fascinating, even if our raving LSU fans in the office are suspicious of his Alabama roots.

Full disclosure, I buy wine mostly based on whether or not the bottle has a cool label or fun name, but luckily for you I’ve done some of the leg work to help you select your next bottle.

 

Bacchus Pinot Noir - Not only is this a great every day wine, it’s named after the Roman god of wine and one of my favorite Mardi Gras parades. You can usually snag a bottle of this at Pearl Wine Bar in New Orleans.

 

Seven Deadly Zins Zinfandel - This is your new wine to drink with steak. Trust me. It’s heavy with a full oaky flavor that is dynamite for really almost any grilled meat.

 

Louis Jadot Beaujolais Villages – I found this guy in Whole Foods and took a chance based on the aforementioned “cool label” and “fun name” wine test. Turns out it was a great wine that paired really well with Brie cheese.

 

Joel Gott Sauvignon Blanc - During the 10 months of the New Orleans calendar year when the weather is above 90 degrees, you can find me sipping something crisp like a Sauvignon Blanc or a Pinot Grigio. Joel has been my go-to guy for the past two summers.
