I became a Trend Hunter in September 2013 working as the Editorial & Social Media Intern and Video Production Assistant. I have a passion for writing, film, music and food. I'm always stoked to meet new people so tweet me at @sdossantos :).
I love metalcore bands -- you'll find me in the pit at their shows in Toronto. I enjoy YouTube for all of its fascinating personalities and I'm inspired by people who want to make the world a better place. As of January 2014 I've resurrected my love for literature and poetry, and I absolutely love going to the cinema with my other half.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I used to make YouTube vlogs during my first year of uni. I talked about things like disappointing pizza, Warped Tour and bizarre life experiences.
How do you define cool?
Something that makes me want to share it with someone else.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Refreshing sources constantly and finding new ones weekly. It gets tough trying to filter through the same websites to find something new, so switching it up and exploring a variety of categories really helps.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
I love the team, the positive work environment and the friendly competition amongst colleagues. Everyone here is challenged to grow and achieve goals beyond their own expectations. At Trend Hunter, everyone looks out for each other, supports each other and spurs one another on towards achieving their full potential.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Find something you're passionate about and go to town, remembering to use expressive and creative language. Also, using photographs helps you to go into detail about all the little things you love about the product, service or idea.
How do you reset to be creative?
Spending time with my friends, going to the cinema and trying new food!
What inspires or excites you?
The future, space, travelling, landscape and city photography, food blogs, ice cream, great people, live music, new books, movie trailers.
