Meet Erik Schwenke, the latest addition to the Seafoam Media team. As our Project Manager, Erik brings extensive experience in social media management, digital marketing, and brand strategy. Here’s a little bit about Erik:
If you could have any super power what would it be?
If I had any super power, I’d choose time travel. So I could be a hero! Like Hiro. From Heroes.Consider this: in the tropes of sci-fi and fantasy stories/shows, time travel is generally considered the “overpowered” ability. And who doesn’t like being overpowered? Notice how those types of characters always have story lines to be kept in check, because they have the power to change anything!
What are you most passionate about professionally?
From a professional standpoint, I’m really passionate about the content I help to create. Each project I work on gets the Erik stamp of approval, and I look at everything from the standpoint of, “is this something I might read?”.
What apps, software or tools can’t you live without?
My arsenal of favorite tools: Twitter, Yoast SEO, and Photoshop.
What do you like to do in your free time?
In my free time, I love to play board/card games (currently addicted to Hearthstone) and am also the singer/songwriter of my band, Ninjas in Disguise.
What do you like most about working remotely?
Working remotely is great because I can be a lot quicker and more efficient in communicating and responding to emails. I’ve also become very well acquainted with the menus at most coffee shops.
What does your workspace look like?
My primary workplace just so happens to be my living room. Within this command center, I stay motivated with plenty of caffeine and a collection of lithographs from one of my favorite artists, John Avon. However, you’re just as likely to find me anywhere with a WiFi connection and an outlet for my laptop.
