Brittany – 10 Years, 10 Employees, 10 Things


I love plants! I have plants everywhere in my house and office. The green color is bright and makes me feel happy. I like to add plants as an accent item in my interior design, the green helps bring everything to life. There’s something about getting in the dirt and reconnecting with the earth that relaxes me.   My hair speaks for itself, need I say more? I have never dyed my hair, it’s all natural. Shout to my mom and dad.   I have a pair everywhere I go, I love my tootsies to be cozy. I’m a creature of habit and I like to be comfortable at all times. I am a comfort-style icon, fashion week doesn’t know about me yet.   Last fall I adopted two kittens, Posey & Oreo. They are the craziest little beasts, but I couldn’t imagine my house without them. They are the…

First off, all these items are indicative of me because I completely forgot to bring stuff in the day of the photoshoot and had to grab things I had on hand in my bag, my office, and the game shop across the street. I’m forgetful because there’s a lot going on in my head. And, apparently, I have a lot of random stuff with me at any given time. Since I had a thrown-together list, I missed a couple of things that are important to me: family (my extended family has always been close), my wife (she’s a pretty cool nurse/roller derby rocking/ex-professional women’s football playing/mom/knitter) , our dogs (we have two; a small one and a gigantic one), and music (I’m a huge fan of many genres, and I’ve been playing guitar since I was 14). This is a page from my portfolio with a selection of screen printed…

Let’s start this off with a coffee. Nothing gets done without it. Every morning, whether at work or at home you can find me getting the Keurig or coffee maker running. I’ve been drinking coffee since I was 14 years old and I can’t quit now.   My wife and kids are my number one priority and the most important thing I have to live for. My wife Kally and I have been together for 14 years. Our 2 boys, Tatum and Carter have provided us extreme joy and love since the beginning. I can attribute my personal growth and success to my family. They have shaped who I am today.   Every weekend my youngest son wakes up and is ready for multiple strips of bacon. We go through a pound of bacon every weekend. Eggs and Toast wouldn’t be the same without it.   Traveling the country and…

My happy place is a flea market or an antique store. I am pretty sure I lived in an earlier time because I love old things AND I love European things. This little rusty urn makes me happy because it reminds me of both. It’s unusual size also makes me smile. It sits on display in my home office, and the family cat enjoys it very much.   It’s a little hard to see, but these guys are magnets featuring my home, the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I grew up in a little town named Calumet, Michigan, that once was a Copper Boomtown. So much so, it was in the running for the capital of Michigan. But now the mines are closed and people live up there because of their love of the land, most notably the big lake, Lake Superior. It will always be a special place to me.…

When I was little I remember driving from Sauk Centre to St. Cloud, seeing the sign on I-94 for Saint John’s University and the Abbey from a distance. I dreamed about going to college there someday (I had no idea it was a men’s college). At the same time, I didn’t think it would ever be in the cards for me because of the price tag that came along with it. My dad came from an extremely low-income family; therefore, he worked day and night to provide for our family so that we wouldn’t have the same life growing up as he did. My parents always taught me that no matter the circumstances, anything is possible if you believe in yourself and work hard. The day finally came that I received my College of Saint Benedict acceptance letter and four years later my diploma followed. I guess it was in…

The iPhone with the Uniregistry logo represents my involvement in domaining. I am an avid domain name investor and have a great amount of interest in the industry as well as other digital assets such as crypto currency.   The Silver Dollar is my pocket silver. I carry this in my pocket all the time. It represents my interest in coins and precious metals which I like to collect.   The Mighty O Donuts card and Canon lens cap mostly represent my significant other, my partner in crime, the love of my life, Tara. Mighty O is her favorite place to grab a coffee and a snack. This card actually depicts a newer location that is right next to her work. It's as if they knew she would work across the street. The lens cap is simple, Tara is also a photographer and designer.   The Moog is a modular…

The guitar pick represents a newer hobby of mine. Learning to play guitar is something I’ve been doing slowly for a few years. I mostly just play parts of songs that I like and a few little riffs. AC/DC is my main go-to.   Stephen King’s IT is my favorite book. I’m a Stephen King fan because he is such a master at making unbelievable things seem real. I love the characters and settings that he invents. IT is my favorite of his work, but The Shining and Pet Sematary are great too. Even though we do very different work, he’s still a big creative influence to me.   The pen is my go-to drawing tool. I have been drawing for as long as I can remember. It’s always been a part of my life. I’ve used this pen to draw animals, aliens, vehicles, zombies and all kinds of nonsense.…

My favorite season is spring. And with the February we just had, I’m sure it's moving to the top of everybody’s list. The earth is just beginning to wake up and turn to green. There is a renewed energy as the temperature warms. My love of spring and everything dirt explains my reason for the garden trowel. Maybe it's the farming background in me or my desire to be grounded. The garden trowel represents my love of growing something from nothing and connects me to nature. The busyness of the marketing world can be wearing. But after a long day in the office the best therapy I can use is to get my hands in the dirt and literally get back "down-to-earth".   When I was about ten I began taking piano lessons. I never became great at it like many cousins in my family but I did enjoy it.…

The item on top of the white box is a necklace with the state of Montana on it. This is important to me for two reasons. First, I grew up in Montana for 16 years, but I still find myself calling that “home.” Minnesota is definitely home to me as well, it’s where many amazing things have happened, but Montana is just where my heart is. One day I am hoping we make it back there! Second, I got this necklace the day before I married my husband near Red Lodge, MT. Red Lodge has always been my favorite spot in Montana and it reminds me of our amazing wedding.   You can see two glass jars to the left side of the picture, those are spice jars. The spices in them don’t actually have any certain significance, but the point was to show my love of healthy food. Eating…

The focal point of my 10 things has to be my very handsome model Fiancé on the "Singing in the Rain" show poster from GREAT Theatre. I started acting in musical theatre shows when I was 8 years old and my first big mainstage show, "Charlotte's Web", sparked a newfound joy in me that has continued to this day whenever I can be onstage. Fast-forward many years later and I never realized theatre would also bring me to my future husband as we shared the stage in "The Wedding Singer".   Speaking of my Fiance, I had to make sure to include my engagement ring in my photo. Not only does it symbolize our love and soon to be marriage, but it also has two very important diamonds included in its gorgeous setting. My late grandfather, Harold, meant the world to me and his marriage to my grandmother, Inez, has…
