Oh, hello there! I'm Liv and I've been a part of the Trend Hunter family for about a year now. I started off as an intern in Trend Hunter's one-of-a-kind intern academy, and now that I've finished school I work here as a video editor. There are always crazy activities and personalities in the office, and I try and capture them and share them with the world!

I read
I write
I travel light,
I play
I cook
Don't sleep at night.

Also, I'm a social media addict. Didn't quite fit into the rhyme scheme.

What is unique that's not in your bio?
I enjoy making cheesy rap songs. Brap Brap.
What's your favorite accomplishment?
Having Zach Braff (yes, that Zach Braff) retweet a photo of me eating cereal.
How do you define cool?
Nick Simmons. OR Anything you see or hear that makes you so incredibly excited that you immediately text/tweet/message/phone your friends about it. Something that doesn't go quietly. Also something you see that makes you think "Damn, I wish I thought of that first!"
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Dig deep! The Internet is vast and full of greatness. Keep your eyes peeled, and your fingers clicking.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
Literally everything. I've never worked in such a creative and fun workplace. We're always laughing and learning. This sounds like a commercial. You should buy into this commercial.
What is your favorite trend?
Slow-Mo Jello Throws! (I watched the video on repeat)
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Punny posts are people-pleasers. Also, use alliteration. :)
How do you reset to be creative?
Tea parties with my co-workers are a lovely way to reset creativity.
What inspires or excites you?
Nothing excites me like a perfect meme.
Predict something awesome for 2020?
My 30th birthday, you're all invited!
