Where I am
Since this summer, I’ve kept a travel blog. It’s helped me log and remember all the trips I’ve been fortunate enough to take.
It helps me remember all the people and friends in my life, both new and old. Like Anthony from Oslo, Norway (who we met by accidentally stumbling into a Denver themed sports bar) who took us out until 3am in Oslo before catching a 4am bus to a 7am flight. Like the Spanish couple we shared our champagne with on the steps of Piazzale Michelangelo in Florence, Italy after they got engaged.
Like the CU graduate in Prague that asked me to take a picture for her. It helps me remember seeing friends from school randomly on the street at a castle in Budapest, meeting an old roommate for dinner in Paris, and a high school best friend for gelato in Rome.
It helps me remember all the places I’ve been in each city down to the tiny little restaurants in European neighborhoods. Like the hole in the wall restaurant in Barcelona where the beef carpaccio was so amazing that I got the same thing two days in a row. Like the coffee shop we sat in for hours while lost in Venice in a rainstorm.
It helps me remember all the incredible sights I’ve seen: the Nobel Peace Prize Museum, The Cliffs of Moher, Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, The Red Light District, The Eiffel Tower, The Louvre, paragliding and kayaking through the Swiss Alps, Padráo dos Descobrimentos - the supposed launching site of Christopher Columbus' expedition, Palacio Cibeles, Las Ventas bullfighting arena, Plaza Mayor, Sagrada Familia, Park Güell, FC Barcelona Camp Nou Stadium, The Coliseum, The Vatican, The Sistine Chapel, The Spanish Steps, Michelangelo’s David, The Duomo, Ponte Vecchio, The Leaning Tower of Pisa, Rialto Bridge, St. Mark’s Square and Basilica, The Acropolis, the famous blue domed churches of Santorini, Széchenyi bath house of Budapest, the Danube River, Prague Castle, the John Lennon Wall, The Berlin Wall, Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp Memorial Site, the islands of Stockholm, Thingvellir National Park and Gullfoss waterfall in Iceland, and the midnight sunset. My hometown of Denver, my fabulous summer job in Vail, my friends in New York City.
I’ve been so fortunate to travel so much, meet new people, eat incredible food, see beautiful sights, and see different art forms across the globe.
For a long time, I’ve been thinking I want to go into marketing some sort of experiences or lifestyles rather than simply products. My travel blog has helped me to remember all of the past experiences I discussed above, but now has also helped me figure out where I want to go with my future experiences.
Yes, marketing is ultimately about driving sales and increasing revenue. I love having the opportunity to be creative, to create content for all different mediums, to engage with consumers, to review and understand analytics, to build websites and geek out on all things website/digital/social media related. I can do that with marketing for any type of organization or company. I’ve come to realize how incredible it can be to do these things for an organization or industry I’m genuinely passionate about.
Both Bravo! Vail and Comedy Works gave me the opportunity to be a total marketing nerd while immersed in a field I genuinely enjoyed and was passionate about – live music and live comedy. I want to bring these unique experiences to people.
I want to bring everyone the freedom and happiness of an experience – whether it's music, comedy, theater, or adventure sports. I want to bring them a life enhancing experience.
