Why Marbaloo?: Marbaloo has such an exciting edge in the music industry and is home to some of Nashville’s most intelligent and capable women in the biz. I loved the idea of being with a company that inspires their team members to invest themselves wholeheartedly into the projects they work on while looking to the horizon to keep a competitive edge. The office is bright, the people are passionate, and I knew company culture played a lot into my excitement about coming to Marbaloo for this semester as a Marketing and Interactive Intern. I’m blessed to be here and to learn from some show-stopping, innovative leaders.
What is your thing and why?: I have to say I have always had such a passion for live events and concerts. There’s nothing that gets me more excited than hearing a song live, up close and personal, that I have been listening to on Spotify, CD or Vinyl, and experiencing the visual effects that go along with the music at live shows. From that comes my love of fun, creative marketing campaigns and all the visual content (photos, aftermovie) that come after the show is over.
Why do you do what you do?: Music is a language that anyone can understand, across the globe. There’s nothing that I can think of that is more unifying yet simultaneously unique than music from different parts of the world, and I knew from a young age that music would always be a part of my life. Now I get to be a part of the industry that makes it happen, gets music on shelves and onto your playlists, the industry that curates the sounds of our culture. That’s pretty special to me.
What inspires you?: Music, Quotes, Hugs, Laughter, Recognition, Good Food, Friends, Jokes, Bright Colors. Did I say Music?
What do you wish people knew about you?: I am a total cat lady (and proud of it).
How do you like to spend your free time?: When I think about free time, I have very little of it. I say that to mean that most every moment in my day is doing something to push myself to the next level, grow in my experiences and understanding, build relationships, help people (and myself) feel better, look better and be more confident; I am a full time Belmont student, a proud intern, a live event production entrepreneur, a small business owner with an incredible health and wellness company, a blessed girlfriend and Miss Parsons 2018, representing the Miss America Organization and the small but mighty town of Parsons, TN as an advocate for the power of citizenship and Children’s Miracle Network. I try to turn my free time into growth and giving, but then again I love cooking elaborate meals, long baths and watching Netflix. We are all human, right?
What’s your favorite saying?: Anything Paulo Coelho, especially from the book “The Alchemist” that remind me daily of the Law of Attraction and my passion for seeing the world throughout my life. Here are my two favorites because it’s difficult to choose only one when so many are so inspiring.
What do you do to recharge your creativity?: I have different Spotify playlists for different moods so I can trick myself into being excited or thoughtful or downright asleep (with the rain sounds playlist I have on speed dial); A quick sweep of Pinterest or an inspirational podcast and I am back at it again with a renewed excitement and motivation. Colors and words can be so inspiring!
What song can't you stop playing right now?: Pearl Diver by Alfred Hall, a new single released on 2/2 from the up and coming Norwegian duo with a sound like syrup. Check out their new track & some of my favorite Nashville electro and pop sounds on my new playlist “Tally’s Electric Vibes.” You can find it on Marbaloo’s Spotify.
