Why hello, I didn't see you over there. Here's some information about myself.
Aspiring creative consultant with a background in social media management, photography, curating, customer-centric solutions, and buzzwords. For a complete list of my extensive professional experience find me on Linkedin. You know how some people go to college and make a plan for what their class schedules are going to be like for the next 4 years, and then a plan for exactly what job they want to do when they are finally considered an adult? Like the rest of those plans, mine did not go as planned. So here's what really happened with my life!
Year 1 to 18: North Pole
I grew up in North Pole, Alaska. It's in the middle of the state. There I was basically an instagram model before instagram was a thing. (fig. 1) This was thanks to my mom who is a photographer and scrapbooking enthusiast. (fig.2) I was what they call an inside kid back then, playing the cello, watching a lot of vhs tapes, and eating cinnamon rolls on the couch.
Year 18 to 22: University of Washington
When I first came to Seattle it was automatically the best place on earth. I was given a glorious gift, that no matter where I went, it would always be better than North Pole. (see fig. 3)
I went to UW under the impression that I was going to become an Engineer. Did not enjoy that. So I majored in Art History, because it was something I legitimately enjoyed studying. Plus studying abroad in Italy (fig. 4) to study art was kind of incredible.
Year 22 to Present: Seattle
After college I got a job at Chihuly Garden and Glass exhibition, because it made me feel like I could one day use my degree, and because they hired me.
About a year in I felt pretty done with art forever. So from there I started working at Nuflours Bakery, where I was literally surrounded by snacks all the time (dreams do come true).
Doing Social Media was kind of my calling, and from that so was Photography, and then web design, and Email Marketing, and Ecommerce, and Graphic Design. SO many new skills came out of there, but I was marketing Gluten Free goods to Gluten Free peoples, in the Seattle Area. My world became teeny tiny, so I left.
From there I finally became an outside kid. Hiking through the Olympic Peninsula, Shi Shi Beach, Lava Canyon, High Rock, Mt. Elinor, and more. I went back to Alaska for awhile, ate some snacks in LA, and then went to Korea, Japan, Ireland!
Today I temp at Amazon doing something super cool and super secret that has to do with snacks, I work as a Marketing Coordinator at a successful promo swag supplier with awesome people, AND I’m working to launch my side hustle/passion project: Vegetablepuns.com
