Say “hi” to Sam, one of Random Agency’s newest Social Media Interns! We can’t wait to get to know him…and what better way to do that than a Q & A?
First, the obvious question: Why did you choose Random Agency?
When I first looked into Random Agency, it seemed like they valued creative thinking. This became even more apparent when they asked me to create some social media content as part of my application. As part of an internship, I am really hoping to enhance my creative and strategic skills and I think Random Agency is the place that will help me build those skills.
Tell us three cool things about yourself.
1) I’m left-handed! This means that I smudge everything when I write, and I have the hardest time using scissors.
2) I drove across the entire country by myself in two days. Back in 2019, I found myself in Philadelphia, needing to get back to California in a short amount of time. Long story short, I drove non-stop for two days, only stopping to sleep in Walmart parking lots. A once-in-a-lifetime experience that I will never do again.
3) I speak Spanish fluently and am working on learning Portuguese now!
Favorite TV show?
I’m usually not a TV person (movies all day), but my current favorite TV show is Severance! It’s a combination of comedy, mystery, suspense, and just plain absurdism. It also has a really unique set design, which I’m learning is a green flag for me when it comes to TV shows.
If money was no object, where would you go and what would you do?
I would go to Argentina! I lived in Argentina from 2016 to 2018 and I miss it so much. I would probably go and visit friends, but I would mainly explore the many natural landmarks that the country has to offer.
What’s in your refrigerator right now?
A one-pot cheesy spinach gnocchi meal I made last night. And a lot of spinach because I accidentally bought way more than I needed.
If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
Teleportation because gas is expensive. Also because I would like to go to mars one day, but the thought of traveling in space scares me.
What’s your favorite childhood memory?
Going anywhere outside. Where I grew up, we were equally distant from Yosemite or the beach, so we spent a lot of time at those two places. In my opinion, Yosemite is the Disneyland of National Parks, so every visit there was absolutely magical.
Name one thing you wish you could do better.
I wish I was better at sports. I am a big sports fan, but my athletic coordination doesn’t extend past running and swimming. I just want to dunk a basketball.
Which three things would you take to a desert island?
Probably a musical instrument to keep myself entertained, a tent to sleep in, and a Costco Wholesale so I can buy food (I hope this isn’t cheating).
What is the last book you read?
Life List by Olivia Gentile. It’s about Phoebe Snetsinger, the woman who documented over 8,000 bird species in her lifetime. A wonderful book about a woman with an obsessive passion and the tragedies that occurred during her adventurous travels. Definitely recommend 👌🏼
What is your favorite account to follow on Instagram?
Right now, @sporarts. It’s a page dedicated to athletic expression & culture through art. The page posts anything from vintage photography from past ad campaigns to paintings and illustrations inspired by sports.
