How did you hear about Snap36?
I first heard about Snap36 from my coworker and one of my best friends, Peter Marshall. Peter and I had met freshman year at the University of Iowa and ended up living together our senior year. Peter had worked as an intern the summer before and would always talk about how fun and cool of a company Snap36 was. When Peter told me they were looking to hire another sales person, I could not turn down the opportunity to send in my resume.
What did you study in college?
I graduated from the University of Iowa with a business degree in Marketing. I was always interested in pursuing a business degree and marketing was a field that always stood out to me. The best part of marketing is there are so many different paths it allows you to take, and you get to work with all the different sides of the business.
What is your favorite activity to do in your free time?
I am not sure if I have one favorite hobby but if I had to choose one I would say watching or playing sports. I grew up playing or watching almost every sport and now that I am older, I have really gained respect for both college and professional athletes. The amount of work, skill, and time they put into being an athlete is truly amazing.
Where is your favorite travel spot?
Barcelona was one of my favorite places I have ever been. I was lucky enough to have the chance to live in Barcelona for four months when I studied abroad. The culture is completely different than anything I was expecting and the people there were awesome. Although I won’t be going back anytime soon, I would love to go back and enjoy another vacation in Europe
What is the last TV show you watched?
Slowly but surely I am about to finish Ozark on Netflix. Definitely an interesting show and took some time to get into. Now I just need to find something to hold me over until April 14 for the last season of Game of Thrones!
If you could meet one famous person, who would it be?
Mark Cuban. Not only is he extremely successful, but he also owns a sports franchise. One of my favorite tv shows to watch is Shark Tank. I think my best chance to meet him would be to come up with an idea and pitch it in the tank
Who is your favorite sports team?
The Chicago Blackhawks are my favorite sports team. I never played hockey but I grew up watching it. It also helps that they won three Stanley cups and I was old enough to remember all of them. Nothing beats playoff hockey!
What is has been your favorite memory at Snap36?
Favorite memory at Snap36 was the transition from the old studio to the new studio. The entire process was very exciting and the fact that we moved the studio without having to shut down was awesome. 219 felt so big compared to 2140 and just over a year later we are filling up almost all of the desks
What do you look forward to in 2019?
I am looking forward to running my first marathon in October. I signed up for the Bank of America Chicago Marathon and am running on behalf Ann & Robert Lurie Children’s hospital. It has always been on my bucket list to run in a marathon and I figured I might as well do it when I am young.
