Team Member Spotlight: Alex

 

Marleigh

Alex and her dog Marleigh

Alex, Communications Manager at OneSpace, is a St. Louis native and has been with OneSpace since 2011 (back when we were still Juggle!).

Alex loves all things grammar and handles a number of different communication initiatives, from writing the monthly newsletter to managing the content strategy for the OneSpace for Freelancers site. Alex came to OneSpace after finding the company’s job posting for a “grammar ninja,” and the rest is history.

We asked Alex a number of questions, some relevant and some ridiculous, to showcase how awesome she is and why she deserves this spotlight!

Q: What is your favorite OneSpace Value? Why?

My favorite value is “This is more than ‘just a job.’” OneSpace isn’t just a place to work; it’s a movement. Every team member is dedicated to our mission of changing the way the world works.

Q: If you were trapped on an island, what three things would you bring, and why?

Pronger

Alex is a diehard St. Louis Blues fan. This is her and Chris Pronger, one of her favorite former players.

1. The book “Infinite Jest” by David Foster Wallace. Wallace is my all-time favorite author, and “Infinite Jest” is arguably his most famous book. It’s about 1,000 pages long and really hard to get through, so I haven’t been able to finish it yet. This would be the perfect chance to do so.

2. A pen. I can’t read a book without a pen in my hand. I also love to write, so I guess I would need…

3. A notebook or a journal too.

Q: What was your dream job growing up?

When I was really little I wanted to be a veterinarian, and then once I got a little bit older I wanted to be an English professor.

Q: If you could be any car, what car would you be, and why?

An old VW bus, because I’m a bit of a hippie at heart.

AWK

Alex and musician/motivational speaker Andrew W.K.

Q: Ideal travel destination?

Anywhere with mountains. I love Colorado. I would love to do a road trip west through Colorado and Utah and then up the coast to Canada.

Q: Favorite 90s song?

“Killing in the Name” by Rage Against the Machine

Q: What makes you really geek out?

Reading, writing, grammar, and feminism.

Q: Do you have any hidden talents?

Honestly, no. I can’t even whistle or blow a bubble with gum.
