Meet Shelby, Our Newest Social Media Specialist

Say "hi" to Shelby, That Random Agency's newest Social Media Specialist! We can't wait to get to know her and what better way to do that than a Q&A?

First, the obvious question: Why did you choose Random Agency?

Their vibrant and energetic culture caught my eye! I loved the personality that they brought to their own brand & the emphasis they put on making an effort to always be growing, learning, and sharing!

Tell us three Random Facts about yourself.

  1. This question might be one of my Top 5 Worst Fears
  2. Not to brag but I am a four time elementary spelling bee champ. 😤💪🏻
  3. When I'm not doing social media for work, I do it as a hobby! You could say I'm becoming an influencer of sorts

Favorite TV show?

Depends on the day Psych will always be my #1 comfort show, but I could talk to you forever about Barry or Ted Lasso.

If money was no object, where would you go and what would you do?

My husband, my pup & I would definitely move to New York and buy a beautiful, old brownstone in Brooklyn.

What's in your refrigerator right now?

Literally what isn't in there? A case of Diet Dr. Pepper An old bottle of wine or two Some Frank's Red Hot Buffalo sauce Oh, and way too many leftovers to count. It's fine.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Super speed. I am admittedly the reason my chronically early partner is never on time to functions anymore  

What's your favorite childhood memory?

I used to do summer camps at the local theater in middle school and I look back pretty fondly on that.

Name one thing you wish you could do better.

I used to work at a third-wave coffee shop so I wish I could make decent latte art with my at-home espresso machine. A frothy blob is really exciting when you don't have a $30,000 machine to steam your milk just right.

Which three things would you take to a desert island?

I'm boring The dog, the man, the phone. 5G is like everywhere, right?

What is the last book you read?

Strangers by Nature by Madison Heberlie

What is your favorite account to follow on TikTok?

Has to be @jadennedwardsss, @chris or @haileyknox

Meet Sam: Social Media Intern

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.

Meet Casey, Our Newest Social Media Specialist

Say hi to Casey, Random Agency's newest Social Media Marketing Specialist! We can't wait to get to know her and what better way to do that than a Q & A?

First, the obvious question: Why did you choose Random Agency?

I chose Random Agency because I wanted to grow with a company that would provide me with the creative freedom, support, and skills I need to thrive.

Tell us three cool things about yourself.

I play video games, I golf, and I enjoy hammocking.

Favorite TV show?

Avatar the Last Airbender.

If money was no object, where would you go and what would you do?

If money was no object I would go to Japan and experience the colorful and beautiful food and culture. You can experience the traditional architecture or explore the modernized technological advances that they have woven in with their restaurants and stores. There are so many things to see and do so I'd want to make sure to spend a long period of time visiting.

What's in your refrigerator right now?

My first attempt at homemade salsa.

If you could have a superpower, what would it be?

Telekinesis so I could make things move and lift anything with my mind (including myself so technically I could also have the power to fly). It's 2 powers in one.

What's your favorite childhood memory?

Playing in the backyard with my brother and friends.

Name one thing you wish you could do better.

Play piano. Once you learn how to play piano a lot of instruments become much easier to understand.

Which three things would you take to a desert island?

Practically a knife, a tent, and a fishing pole so I can survive long enough to escape...

What is the last book you read?

The Rise of Kyoshi

What is your favorite account to follow on Instagram?
