Dream Job, Dream Year


It's interesting how something can start out as an outlet and become a passion. I began writing this blog in 2009 as a way to catalog my favorite things (but more importantly, as an creative outlet from my legal job) with no real goal in mind. I've always been creative in one sense of the word but I never thought of it as a career choice. I still remember reading an article about Andy Spade in '03 and thinking how being a creative director/copywriter would be the coolest thing ever but I had no idea what to do or where to start. 

Well, fast forward to this week and I found myself in NYC starting my dream job as a copywriter/editor for Todd Snyder. I'll be writing copy for their products, developing promotions/campaigns, and running their blog (which are all skills that I cultivated here at Alex Grant over the years).  And although it has not been an easy road, the journey has been very rewarding and I am eternally grateful for all of the opportunities that lead up to this moment. 

I just want to personally thank each and every one of you for stopping by and supporting me over the years. Hopefully, this blog encouraged you to not only dress better but to follow your dreams.

Make every year a #dreamyear,

Skip
