About

My father always called me “Monique the Geek” when I was growing up, and geek is one of the better nouns that rhymes with my name. I don’t think he ever imagined it would turn into a {wildly successful} domain, but here we are!

I’m a driven, results-oriented professional with 6+ years of digital marketing experience. I’ve always been a big believer in exceeding expectations, enthusiasm for my craft, and working with passionate people.

In March of 2010, I starting contributing to Holiday Matinee, a blog for creative inspiration that’s all about products and ideas that get us fired up, rad music and art, social good, and loving your work. See my posts here. I’ve also written some posts for the amazing Wantist blog, which focuses on gifting the perfect gift for those you love.

When I’m not working my love, a few hobbies of mine include photography, experiencing music in multiple settings, and touring local craft breweries. I’m inspired by vintage decor, wood furnishings, simple illustration, and bright, bold design. I also like people-watching, people’s opinions, and just people in general.
