7 Questions with…Sarah Arvizo!

Q. What will you do at Cutline?
As a manager, I help keep the engine running on a few different accounts, making sure that we are generating the best results for our clients from both a strategic and tactical perspective. This includes acting as counsel/a go-to resource for clients, ensuring account operations run smoothly, and helping to secure awesome coverage! I also have the privilege of overseeing and mentoring some of my fellow rock stars, as well as learning from all the smart cookies around me!

Q. What's your greatest moment in PR so far?
I recently experienced my PRoudest moment(s) before joining Cutline, working on the beta launch for Hound, a voice search and personal assistant app from SoundHound Inc. that took the internet by storm! In prepping for the launch, I was able to set up meetings with the type of media a PR person dreams of. Meeting these journalists in person, witnessing jaws drop during the demos, and seeing a slew of amazingly positive coverage hit at launch was such a treasured experience. It also was a testament to my client’s technology, and made me see how much value there is in (and how much fun it is to pitch) a product/service/offering that has actual impact on an industry, on consumers, or even better, on both!

Q. Who do you love to follow on Twitter and why?

  • @UberFacts -- Because I love learning about random things.

  • @BestMovieLine -- I’m obsessed with quotes, movies, and quotes from movies.

  • @UTAustin -- For all the news from the best university! Because what starts there changes the world. \m/

  • @annakendrick47 -- Because her wit deserves as much props as her acting does.

  • Music and sports venues, because they not only report on news, but will often post ticket giveaways, which I have benefited from many times. GO LAKERS!

  • Journalists, especially those generally cynical in nature. Makes for an entertaining read -- and oftentimes, is highly educational for PR practitioners.

  • Finally, my 18-yr-old sister, so I can keep tabs on her!

Q. What's the one gadget service you wish someone would come up with?
One day…

Q. Android, iPhone, or other?
Blackberry! J/K. Android #FTW.

Q. What's your favorite thing about living in New York City?
That it kicks my a$$! But, in a good way. Seriously, Frank had it right, no doubt about that. I’ve lived in some of the coolest cities in the world (Rome, Austin, Los Angeles, and of course, El Paso, Texas), but there’s also something extremely validating in knowing you actually can make it in New York.

I could do without (what feels like) six months of this, though:

Q. What do you love to do when you're not working?

  • Spend money I don’t have on food and drinks.

  • Lay out, in an attempt to regain the color I’ve lost during the winter...before the impending gloom returns once again.

  • Play tour guide to visiting friends and family.

  • Make it home in time to watch “Jeopardy!”

  • Check out as many shows as I can -- most recently, made it to Radio City Music Hall for the first time to see Kelly Clarkson, Citi Field for Foo Fighters, and Central Park Summerstage for Milky Chance and X Ambassadors. I think we forget how lucky we are that every musical artist performs here!

  • Catch up with my family in Texas and California, especially my sisters who are starting college and high school this fall!

Q. What will you do at Cutline?

As an Account Coordinator, my major job will be to assist the team in developing key materials like coverage reports, backgrounders and abstracts. I’ll provide support on every aspect of the accounts and help to think through the next steps of campaigns.

Q. What's your greatest moment in PR so far?

My greatest moment in PR has to be winning the title of Utah’s PR Student of the Year, 2015. I created a campaign that focused on homeless awareness in Salt Lake City for Utah’s Homeless Outreach Service Team. After the creation of the campaign, I competed by writing a news release, pitching a journalist and handling a crisis situation before earning my title. You can pretty much call me Olivia Pope now.

Q. Who do you love to follow on Twitter and why?

  • Marissa Ross (@MarissaARoss) is a blogger of Wine. All the Time. She is interesting, hilarious and has a mouth like a sailor. Bonus- she’ll tell you all the best wines.

  • VentureBeat (@venturebeat) is a publication that focuses on what matters in the tech business world- but they explain issues in ways aspiring techies can understand. (AKA- me.)

  • HuffPost Politics (@HuffPostPol) covers all the latest political news. I’m a political junkie and I want to know everything that is going on with Donald Trump’s toupée right now.

  • Kanye West (@kanyewest) because “when you the absolute best you get hated on the most.”

Q. What's the one gadget service you wish someone would come up with?

I wish there was a device that told me how long the line is at my local Starbucks. I live on Oprah chai tea lattés and I JUST NEED TO KNOW, OKAY?!

Q. Android, iPhone, or other?

iPhone forever!

Q. What's your favorite thing about living in the Bay Area?

Food. Food. Food. I can’t even start to tell you how much my taste palate has grown since moving here. My new favorite food is Indian, particularly chicken tikka masala. So if anyone has any recommendations, please tweet me.

Q. What do you love to do when you're not working?

I love walking around the city searching for bakeries. I’m a cupcake-aholic. My first task in this city is to visit every bakery that has been on Cupcake Wars, because why else would I move here? Oh yeah- CUTLINE.
