It’s been a crazy few months trying to find my rhythm at the mad, incredible mess they call The Martin Agency. I am absolutely astounded by the people and talent that fill the walls of this insane think tank. It’s the kind of place I only dreamed about working after grad school and so many years of experience, but here I am fresh out of college (thank you, God!).
I am currently working in the Operations Department, which is always a difficult thing to explain. But let’s just say that I deal with all the internal workings (or operations, if you will) of the Agency. I do everything from help plan the annual holiday party to bringing someone a new light bulb for their desk lamp. From installing gallery displays to chasing kids around at “Take Our Sons and Daughters to Work Day”. From putting together temporary green rooms for bands to washing dishes at 9 pm. In other words, I do a lot of “A to Z” kind of stuff with not much in the middle.
And I love it.
Below is a small glimpse into my world. I worked with the Analytics Department to install this gallery display for the Boys and Girls Club of Metro Richmond. Can you spot me? - (hint: roommate’s pink top + food table).
