Prior to that, he worked as an associate planning director at Saatchi & Saatchi Australia, and a senior strategic planner at Arnold Worldwide. Harrington’s bio on his LinkedIn reveals that he recently did a stint in Australia and New Zealand.
He writes, “I’m obsessed with what I get to do each day, and feel beyond lucky to have landed in this industry. I love the pace, the creativity, the variety, the people – but most of all the bizarre dinner stories that come out of our day-to-day.”
3. He Received His BA from the University of Miami
Harrington’s LinkedIn account reveals that he received his BA in Marketing and a minor in Advertising from the University of Miami. There, he was a swimmer.
He also studied abroad at Charles University in Prague.

While it’s unclear how he and Antoni met, Antoni admitted, while speaking on the podcast Table Manners in early October, that he is not a fan of the single life. Chatting with Jessie Ware, he shared, “I am somebody who is pathologically co-dependent.”
Antoni went on to say, “I’ve always lost myself in relationships, that’s just the person I am, I kind of tend to lose my identity and I have abandonment issues so I really try to make sure the person loves me and never leaves me.” He also confirmed that he was single after saying the relationship had “run its course.”

Kevin hails from Richboro, Pennsylvania, according to his Facebook.
