Q. What will you do at Cutline?

I'm going to work closely with Megan and Erin to help make Cutline even more awesome. As head of the San Francisco office, I'm also going to make sure we continue to hire really talented people! I love each and every one of the Cutliners and feel lucky to have found such a great home!

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

No Brainer! Joining the Cutline team and getting to work with such smart, curious, ambitious and FUN people.

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

  • @SeinfeldToday - Which is Seinfeld’s commentary if he were still on air today. Always makes me laugh out loud….who doesn’t love a good belly laugh?

  • @foodandwine - For inspiration to try and make new things! Oh and drink more yummy wine.

  • @TheFakeCNN - Since I follow so many reporters and media outlets, it is fun to read some sassy and non-serious commentary on social issues and top news.

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

Two apps:

  1. One that not only tells me what the weather is going to be but also recommends what I should wear out of my closet for the weather - I’m always dressed inappropriately!

  2. An app that tells me when I’m singing the wrong words to a song - I’m definitely more often wrong than right.

Q. Android, iPhone, or other?

The larger the screen the better - receiving my iPhone 6+ next week!

Q. What's your favorite thing about living in San Francisco?

San Francisco combines the best of all worlds - culture, ocean, bay, mountains, wine country, and an amazing food scene - with a dynamic but approachable city. I’m a San Diego native so I’ve got #WestCoastPride.

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

Running, cooking, reading, traveling, laughing and anything outdoors and active… including wine tasting!

From the Page to Stage

Recently, a few of us were lucky enough to attend Pop-Up Magazine in SF. If you’re unfamiliar, it’s a live magazine where journalists bring stories to life on stage using video, photography, audio, and music. From history and film to religion and relationships, the event covered all the content you’d find in a magazine in a brilliant new format.

We were blown away by the experience. Here are just a few of many things we learned and/or loved about the show:

  • Original, captivating music from Minna Choi.

  • Our fave QB, Colin Kaepernick, is the proud papa of a tortoise named Sammy that weighs over 100 pounds.

  • The three reasons characters are killed off in TV series: 1.) the actor wants to leave 2.) the crew wants the actor to leave 3.) narrative imperative (i.e. it’s essential to the storyline).

  • After the three-strikes law was amended, prisoners who were jailed for life due to minor offenses (i.e. stealing a pack of gum) were released. In some cases, prisoners had only the cloth jumpsuits on their backs.

  • The Farallon Islands in the Bay Area were once grounds for a war over eggs.

  • That only six U.S. states allow conjugal visits in jail/prison, with California and Washington having the most lenient programs in the country.

Keep your eyes peeled for the next event in SF, LA or NYC...we highly recommend it!
