What do you do at 900lbs?
As an Account Manager, my job is hanging out, having fun, and cracking wise. I’m kidding, that’s a quote from the television show, Community. Beyond quoting critically-acclaimed, but under-appreciated off-the-air television programs, I’m also responsible for serving our clients and working with the team to make sure that everything we create is the best it can possibly be. Luckily for me, this super smart and competent team makes that part of my job very easy! Now, who wants to hear some 30 Rock references?
What do you do for fun?
I love making stuff! Getting to work with video and emerging technologies in my professional life is perfect for me. And at home, I love to learn how to craft things with my hands. Over the last few years, I’ve been learning to oil paint, sew, do some light woodworking, and most recently, I’ve been learning to work with stained glass (which is very fun and cool but usually involves me cutting myself).
If you didn’t grow up in Dallas, where?
Does Plano count as “not Dallas”?
I have terrible taste in music. I believe that part of becoming a self-actualized adult is coming to terms with, and embracing, your shortcomings. So, I’m okay with this fact about myself. That being said, I prefer 2000s-era Hip Hop, and 50 Cent’s “Get Rich or Die Tryin’” is probably my favorite album of all time.
Where do you hang out in your free time?
My interest in “the crafts” has served me well when it comes to our nearly century-old house in East Dallas. It needs constant care and maintenance, and my husband and I like to figure out how to do everything ourselves. In a house that old, this is a very time-consuming and never-ending endeavor. So, we spend a lot of time at home solving the riddle that is the old house we love!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would it be?
I want to see it all! I’ve been to most of the 50 states (at least all the good ones…), so we’ve been trying to travel more and more internationally. There is so much of the world I want to see and experience, but right now we’re prioritizing Peru and Argentina.
What is your favorite 900lbs project so far?
As I see (and experience!) more and more of 900lbs’ work, I’ve learned there are a lot of things to love! My favorites so far have been an immersive, virtual training environment for a global CPG organization and a simple, yet cinematic, product marketing series for a leading telecom product company (such range, amirite?).
