Why Marbaloo?: I started following Marbaloo almost three years ago when I was interning for a different company in Nashville. The more familiar I became with the company, the more I admired the work ethic, the company culture, and the nontraditional “corporate” vibe. It seemed like the perfect contemporary environment to grow and learn from so many respected professionals in the industry. When the opportunity came up to apply, I jumped and I couldn’t be happier that I did.
What is your thing and why?: Marketing and social media. Marketing just doesn’t exist today without social media. It’s a huge aspect of all of our lives and I love being able to work on behalf of artists and our other clients to help further their success.
Why do you do what you do?: It’s really cool being a part of a team that helps others grow. Whether it’s a marketing campaign their fans/followers love, a #1 song, a video, a new album, or some other project; it’s rewarding to play a small part in achieving clients’ goals and then striving to achieve bigger and better goals in the future. I love the challenges (big or small) that present themselves in this industry.
What inspires you?: I think it’s really cool to see new and creative marketing campaigns that have been pushed out by big companies or other artists. In a way, it challenges you to think outside the box and work hard towards pulling together something awesome for the clients you work for. It’s also inspiring to hear new artists that have that fresh new energy about them. You can’t help but feel excited about it.
How do you like to spend your free time? I pretty much spend most of my free time with friends, at shows, traveling, and trying to stay active in some way. I’m not a homebody, so I love being out and about. That doesn’t mean I don’t enjoy a good Netflix binge or night in every once in a while though :).
What do you wish people knew about you?: I am super easy-going. Most people figure this out the more they get to know me, but I think it takes way more energy to be angry or upset all the time, so I try to be happy and content with everything going on in my life.
What’s your favorite saying?: “Everything happens for a reason.”
What do you do to recharge your creativity?: Take a break. I think sometimes it’s helpful to step away from a project and come back to it after you’ve worked on something else or just taken some time off.
What song can't you stop playing right now? The Middle by Maren Morris & Zedd
