Tell us about your background in content.
I have a pretty diverse background in content creation. I graduated from the University of Oregon with a degree in Journalism, and over the years I’ve worked in advertising, video and photography, and lots of other things that involve putting something compelling on the screen.
What do you love most about working in content creation?
Taking something from an idea to a finished product is pretty exhilarating. The amount of tools that are available to create almost anything is overwhelming, but empowering. And being able to collaborate with talented people to create that stuff is always a great learning experience.
Favorite thing(s) to do outside of work?
You’ll frequently find me camping, working and riding on my ever-changing collection of vintage motorcycles and scooters, or sitting inside and scowling at the weather that is preventing me from doing any of the latter without getting wet. I’m a native Oregonian who never learned to love the rain.
Best part of living in Portland?
Our proximity to so many great things in the city and the surrounding nature is pretty amazing. I’m just as happy having dinner and drinks at a new bar as I am out exploring a new trail or camping area.
Do you have any pets? kids? plants?
My girlfriend and I have a big, white cat named Blue (don’t worry about it) who comes with us everywhere we go by depositing his fur on all of our clothes. He stays at home, eating food out of a crystal bowl placed on top of a grand piano. Otherwise, my many mechanical projects are my children. My stubborn, disobedient, noisy children.
Favorite thing about working for Staffing Robot so far?
Everyone seems like experts in their roles and enthusiastic about projects. This makes it easy to feel confident that as a team, we are putting out some of the best stuff out there. I’m sure I’ll find a lot more, and as a Content Strategist I can come back and edit this post as I please!
