Let's welcome MacKenzie Finlayson, Social Media Assistant!
Family and Pets:
My dad is from South Africa and my mom is from Louisiana and they both went to LSU (aka how they met). I have one little sister named Abigail who is a freshman in high school. I have 2 of the cutest puppies ever – Lolly, who is a West Highland Terrier, and Cocoa, who is a weenie dog mixed with a schnauzer!
“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.” AND “Treat People With Kindness” -Harry Styles
Favorite Trend in our Industry at the Moment:
I am really interested in artificial intelligence. I feel as if it leaves more room for people to utilize their creativity and spend time doing more work at which they excel rather than routine, tedious tasks. I also love how being different and veering away from the norm is now an impactful aspect of marketing.
Two truths and a lie (identify the answer):
- I have been to over 25 concerts
- I lived in Europe for a year
- I was a dancer for 8 years
If you could switch your job with anyone else within Evolve, whose job would you want?
Jacob’s because I find web design to be so interesting and complex – it would be super cool to be able to do that.
What have you gained from working at Evolve?
In one word, I have gained experience. I have learned so much more about social media, design, and all the little aspects that go into creating. I have also been so lucky to be able to work in a kind office environment!
If you could compare yourself with any animal, which would it be and why?
I would probably say a monkey because I always like to have a good time and be goofy, which I feel this animal resembles. I would also consider monkeys to be quite sharp and I am always trying to learn new things and expand my knowledge on the most ridiculous subjects.
When you’re not at work how do you spend your time/What are your hobbies?
I love going to concerts, being outdoors (especially the beach), drawing/painting, binge watching YouTube videos, and dancing around to music with my friends.
What would be your karaoke go-to song and what setting would we likely find you singing it in?
I would definitely sing Bohemian Rhapsody, Baby it’s Cold Outside (I would sing both parts), OR Put Your Records On. You could find me singing karaoke anywhere with a microphone.
If you could invite three people to dinner (dead or alive), who would be at the table and why?
- Harry Styles because he is my favorite artist, is so insightful about life, and I would make him sing for me.
- Freddy Mercury because I have been a fan of Queen since I was in diapers and I have so many questions to ask him.
- Christopher Wray, the Director of the FBI, because I want to know all the secrets.
What would be your dream concert lineup?
Opener: One Direction (the original band)
Finale: Elton John
