Ady Floyd

Superstar

A 25 year old, extremely proud Torontonian of 6 years and a University of Guelph-Humber graduate. After earning a diploma in Public Relations and a degree in Media Communications, I began working at Trend Hunter. This is where I was able to creatively explore my curiosity for marketing, brand management and product innovation.

After completing Trend Hunter's stimulating editorial internship, as well as fulfilling short-term copywriting and public relation contracts, I currently work with the company as a Senior Research Advisor for a variety of fascinating top-tier brands.

When I'm not researching the latest trends and helping my clients find better ideas faster....

- I love to explore new flavors in the marketplace of alcohol, particularly in craft beer
- Watching live comedy from amateur to professional
- Superheroes fascinate me
- I have an (un)healthy obsession with Harry Potter -- visiting the Warner Bros. Studio in London England to see the Harry Potter film set was a mind-blowing and unforgettable experience
- Exploring new places is an endless adventure

What's your favorite accomplishment?
Right now, my greatest achievement was deciding to attend the wicked University of Guelph-Humber, and graduate from the media communications program this year!
How do you define cool?
Different. Abstract. Random.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Consistent exploration. Talking to everyone!
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
.
What are your tips for writing a juicy post?
Write it, then read it in someone elses shoes (sometimes literally) but, if you're not into it, no one else will be either.
How do you reset to be creative?
For me, recharging either consists of a jog, or a solid sleep. Step back, breath, take a minute for myself, and I'm good to go.
What inspires or excites you?
People. Simple as that.
