As a research advisor at Trend Hunter I'm constantly engaging in the latest trends that are emerging on our site.
What is unique that's not in your bio?
I'm very fascinated with the explosion of tech-integrated products in the home, particularly products that can pair with a voice assistant like Google Home or Amazon Alexa. It's so easy to learn how to use the basic functions of a voice assistant, but I think there's so much potential that we haven't completely tapped into yet.
What is your secret to uncovering trends?
Constantly checking my Feedly to see the latest updates from my favorite sources, such as AdWeek and TechCrunch.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
My favorite thing about Trend Hunter is that there are trends coming in from all over the world, and being immersed in the content is a great way to see products, ideas, and ad campaigns that you might not otherwise see in your everyday life.
What is your favorite trend?
My favorite trend at the moment would have to be how brands are utilizing nostalgia to appeal to consumers. It's really interesting to see how brands are reminding adults of some of their favorite childhood memories in a way that makes it easy for them to pass on that connection to younger generations.
