As a recent grad from the University of Waterloo's Arts and Business program, I'm really excited to get started at TrendHunter as a Business Development/Sales Intern. In my spare time I love to do woodworking projects in my garage, play golf, and watch lots of TV (The Wire being the best show ever made, of course).
How do you define cool?
Cool is counterintuitive. It’s something you wouldn’t just automatically think of, but when you hear it you immediately know it’s an idea worth sharing.
What do you enjoy most about Trend Hunter?
What I enjoy most is the autonomy we all have here at TH. From day one, every employee is given the freedom to do their work and develop creative solutions to their problems without being micromanaged. It can sometimes mean added pressure to be proactive and take control of your own work, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
How do you reset to be creative?
You can’t concentrate on one thing for too long. I get up from my desk, go for a walk (different route each time), and grab a coffee. When you stop forcing your mind to come up with something, that’s when the creative solutions come to you. The important part is to do things differently every single day; when you break away from your routine the creative ideas will start to flow.
What inspires or excites you?
I think its really just anything that has the potential to influence tangible changes. Whether it be implementing a new project here at Trend Hunter or developing a new drone technology that changes the world, being able to see the direct results of your effort is what inspires me.
