Why did you decide to join Bold Strategies?
I decided to join Bold Strategies because I wanted to be a part of a passionate team pushing the boundaries of E-commerce strategy.
What's the first thing you ever bought on Amazon.com? What does that say about you?
The first memory I have of purchasing something from Amazon was a trumpet cleaning kit. If you've ever played a brass or woodwind instrument for an extended period of time, you're probably well aware that one of the top priorities (especially for your sake) is to keep your instrument as clean as possible. As a bit of a clean freak, it became clear that I would need to invest in a cleaning kit early on to preserve my personal sanity. Little did I know that I would still be using that same kit nearly a decade later as I traveled across the country performing with various amateur and professional ensembles. There's a very common joy that I feel a lot of people share when they purchase something that initially seems small and unimportant. Still, over time it develops character and becomes something that is consistently dependable. For me, it was this cleaning kit, and I still use it to this day.
What is that one song that's the soundtrack to your life? If you're not a music lover, what's your favorite book?
As a self-proclaimed music nerd, this is like asking me which child is my favorite. The true answer is that it depends on the day, but if I'm backed into a corner, then I have to choose "Heat Waves" by Glass Animals. The deeper meaning behind the song is kind of sad, but the entire context of the song for me personally reflects a very important time in my life and brings back a lot of positive/poignant memories. A close second would be "Stop This Train" by John Mayer. A close third would be "That Was Us" by Kip Moore. And (just for fun) my favorite book is "Sahara" by Clive Cussler.
If you could hop on a plane and not have to worry about expenses, where would you go?
I would fly to Milan, Italy. Upon arrival, I would rent a motorcycle and drive around the coast stopping at Genoa, Florence, Rome, Palermo, Bari, L'Aquila, San Marino, Bologna, and Venice. I would finally fly out of Trieste after hopefully snowboarding down some of the most beautiful mountains in the world, bordering Italy, Austria, and Switzerland.
"I'm happiest when I'm..."
I'm happiest when I'm telling stories. There's nothing better than building a connection with a stranger by providing them with an interesting perspective of your life experiences. For as long as I can remember, sharing, creating, and listening to stories with strangers and old friends alike have always been the foundation for my most cherished memories.
"People would be surprised to know that..."
I'm a daredevil at heart. I love stepping out of my comfort zone and experiencing the wilder side of life. Whether it's snowboarding down a double black or jumping out of an airplane, my inner adrenaline junkie is always looking for the next boundary to break.
