Hometown: Macomb, MI
Why Marbaloo?: Because why not?! I've loved the work experiences that really challenged my creativity. With Marbaloo, I could see the company valued innovative, out-of-the-box thinking. My personality and work style seemed to align exactly with the company culture. And I was absolutely right. The people are positive and forward thinkers. The energy is upbeat. I'm looking forward to calling this home for the rest of the summer.
What is your thing and why?: Partnerships and Marketing are my thang. I'll also loop in artist relations with that. I love the fact that an artist or event can connect with a company and create a completely unique campaign/activation. The sky is the limit. Like Marbaloo having Cole Swindell partner with AAA for his single "Broke Down." That's ingenious. So simple to pair them together, but now an entirely new audience was captured.
What inspires you?: Positive thinkers and bold leaders. People who are unique and aren't swayed by cultural norms. I have to mention one of my biggest inspirations, Bozoma Saint John. Not only has she re-branded and created significant change for multiple companies, but isn't afraid to express herself and admit she's badass. She's my idol for sure.
How do you like to spend your free time? Going to see live music is 100% my favorite, especially at music festivals. There's nothing comparable to the happiness and good vibes of thousands of people seeing their favorite artists. Also, I love to travel even if its just a quick day trip. Then hanging out with friends and trying to fit in a workout or yoga class is the normal day-to-day.
What’s your favorite saying?: As corny as it is... Good vibes only. I'm a firm believer in the power of positivity.
What do you do to recharge your creativity?: Absolutely listen to music. Plugging in my headphones or going on a long drive with the stereo blaring is soothing.
What song can't you stop playing right now?: No way can I limit myself to one song. A few of my favorites right now are: Body by Loud Luxury/Brando, Candle by Quinn XCII, and 17 by MK. All great summer jams.
