We are so excited to welcome Alex to the Mad Fish team. She brings creative strategies and great bullet journaling recommendations to our crew. Learn more about her below. 

Where are you located and what is your favorite thing about it? 

I’m in Beaverton, OR! I love being able to try out and explore local spots not just in the neighborhoods around me, but also love getting to explore the culture and food of Portland! 

What do you like to do in your spare time? 

It depends on my mood! I have a lot of hobbies, and just enjoy staying busy or hanging out with friends. Sometimes it’s bullet journaling, other times it’s video games or reading, or depending on the season, it’s watching OSU sports! 

Have any bucket list item(s)?

I’ve wanted to see Paris since I was about 7 years old, and I really would love someday to explore the city! I also would love to see New York City in December to celebrate Christmas. 

Tell us about your pet!

We have a gray and white kitty named Lulu, named after Louise in Bob’s Burgers. She lives up to her namesake! We got her near the beginning of the pandemic, and she immediately became my WFH buddy while I was finishing grad school. She loves having me still WFH now at Mad Fish and is often sitting next to me during my day! 

What’s your passion project?

Currently, I love bullet journaling. It’s all about the process and being creative, expressing myself, and relaxing while building my skills. In the long run, I’d love to create a podcast on the entertainment and sports industries and hope to use that as a creative outlet as well. 

Why did you pick Mad Fish? 

When I came across Mad Fish, I was immediately drawn to our commitment to our values and our clients. From the big things like our own ethics code or pro bono work with our community, to the little things like even sharing our pronouns on the website, I was sold on how much every person lives and breathes our values. 

Can you share a favorite marketing resource and why?

While working in college media as I finished up grad school, Hootsuite was my life saver in managing social media posting! It made it so easy to manage multiple platforms and create posts all at once to be posted at ideal times throughout the week. I definitely 10/10 recommend! 

What is your favorite genre of music to work to? 

If I’m not listening to a podcast, I’m most likely listening to slow vibes from my Jon Bellion playlist. And if it’s not either of those, I’m exploring the different playlists Spotify makes for whatever mood I’m in! 

What’s a fun fact about yourself?

I danced for 15 years growing up, have had season tickets to Oregon State Football games since I was three, and saw Hamilton on Broadway with the full original cast. 

What do you add to the team outside of work? 

I love connecting with people and I never give up. I adore getting to know people and connecting over the littlest things, finding ways we both enjoy life and just sharing each other’s company. I also hold grit as my reason for growing and working toward something bigger than myself, finding the next obstacle and working to overcome it.
