  • Running – 2020
    new personal record for # of miles/month 🙂
    before:

    breakfast – cup of coffee, oatmeal + vitamins (multi, probiotic)

    pre-workout – Celcius energy drink (~1/2 can)

    always stretch (hamstrings, calf muscles, ankles, hips), jog slowly at the start to warm up + sometimes foam rolling before (if needed)

    lace-up – current shoes are Nike Free Rn 5s (longtime Free Rns fan)

    during:

    music/motivation – Apple AirPods + Apple Music playlists

    tracking – Nike Run Club App (distance > duration), Apple Watch Series 5

    tips – if something doesn’t feel good, stop + stretch a little more. if out of breath, take a quick pause to catch it – don’t force anything! i also find i do some of my best thinking out on my runs, so i’m often writing things down on my phone in the Notes app.

    after:

    muscle recovery – stretching immediately, ice specific muscles (if needed)

    hydration – water, BCAA drink mix + protein shake upon return from run, later on will have water, coconut water or sugar-free Gatorade or Nuun drink tablets (electrolytes)

    hygiene – try to always shower asap, but if i need to finish up the strength training portion of workout first, i make sure to still wash my face immediately to prevent pores from becoming clogged (+acne forming)

  • Adobe Creative Types
    Last year I got The Adventurer + this year I got The Maker. I initially expected to get the same result, but after reading the Maker description, I think it changed accurately + correspondingly based on my transition in roles from copyediting to project managing. 

    ~ Maker types develop the systems, structures, tools + innovations that we all rely on + are almost always busy solving problems, making headway on personally meaningful goals + completing projects. They’re driven by tangible results, know how to deliver + know how to play the long game, unafraid of the unglamorous legwork that goes into building something of value over time. ~

  • Visual Editor
    I’m not an Art Director (clearly), but our whole team was asked to create an email using Epsilon’s new Visual Editor software to get a feel for it, so I used some design elements from Pitchfork Music Festival’s website + some Wikipedia copy to put together a makeshift faux 2019 lineup announcement email (html).
  • 2019 MediaPost EIS Awards
    An email I worked on at Epsilon for NFL won the 2019 MediaPost EIS Awards for Member’s Choice Email Marketing Creativity + Best Use of Dynamic Email Content.
