Graphic Designer / Constant Doodler / Amateur Yogi
What is your role at foodjunky?
I handle all of the graphic design! This includes designing promotional and advertising material for email marketing, illustrating vector elements, working on website and mobile architecture and redesign, social media pretty graphics, brainstorming and conceptualization for various projects. I’m also currently learning UX design at General Assembly in Chicago! But on a typical day, you can usually find me with my face buried in my Mac, drawing some type of food item with the pen tool.
What’s the best part about working for foodjunky?
I feel like I’m taking a MySpace quiz, this is great. It’s got to be harassing my lovely coworkers via Snapchat while simultaneously becoming an expert foodie though.
Obvious question, but what’s your favorite food?
Polish food, specifically from Polish Village Cafe (Hamtramck, MI). I’ll take two of everything on the menu…hold the duck blood soup…extra placki. I couldn’t live without peanut butter though. Which is hand in hand with apples. The combination is addicting.
If you had to add a condiment to every meal, what would it be?
RANCH OVER EVERYTHING #BasicTasteBuds
Okay, enough about food… We turn on the soundtrack to your life, what’s the first song that plays?
This is the hardest question anyone has ever asked me. “Get Buck” by Young Buck. For obvious reasons (it’s a really great opener and gets me hyped up).
If I was to take a peek into your closet, what would I find?
You would find all black everything, a lot of baseball caps and a pretty big collection of sneakers.
You have the opportunity to meet anyone, past or present, who do you choose?
I think I would want to get breakfast with Edgar Allan Poe because ever since I was in poetry club in 9th grade, I’ve felt like we relate on a spiritual level and I need to meet him in person to find out if it’s real. His lit is really haunting and anyone that’s able to give me an eery feeling is someone I want around-so Hitchcock would probably be a close runner up.
What animal would you be?
Well according to every spirit animal quiz I’ve ever taken, I’m a wolf, which is coincidentally my favorite animal. Apparently here’s why – “The power of the wolf brings forth instinct, intelligence, appetite for freedom, and awareness of the importance of social connections. It could point to a way of perceiving and understanding the world around you that works similarly.”
Fun fact about you– GO!
“I have a lifelong Marshall Mathers (Eminem, for those unfamiliar) obsession. If you want to see a reenactment of the 8 Mile final rap battle, hit me up.”
