Giraffe Welcome Mo to the Team
In case you hadn’t noticed, we take a certain pride in the people we have working with us here at Giraffe! It’s each of our individualities that make working here so fun and what we do rock. This week we have the pleasure of Mo Doolan joining us as our newest social media manager!
We are super psyched to introduce to you Mo Doolan as the newest addition to the Giraffe party! Mo is a maritime history nut from Canada! She is quite simply a lovely person and we couldn’t bear the thought that not everybody was aware of her existence - so we stole her for a short interview...
Well hello there Mo!
Describe yourself in three words, one adjective, one verb and one abstract noun.
I would describe myself as musical, caring and creative.
We detect a hint of an accent - where does that come from?
Why yes! I am a Canuck through and through. Born and raised in the great white north - aka Toronto.
What did you study and why?
I studied classic literature before going on to further my knowledge in digital communications and graphic design. I absolutely love history and classic literature but I wanted to find a way to channel that creativity into a more modern and accessible career path.
What drove you to apply to work with Giraffe?
I applied to work at Giraffe because it looked like a really interesting and fun place to work! I also thought it would be a great place for me to continue to evolve my skills in the world of social media.
What are you most looking forward to about working here?
I'm most looking forward to working with the clients I've been given and getting to be creative with their social media while also representing their company values!
What’s the weirdest dream you’ve had this week?
Last night I dreamt I was an archaeologist on the hunt for some sort of holy stone. I referred to it as the tesseract in my dream though, so perhaps I've been watching too much Captain America.
Cool dream! Cooler than mine... Anyway, if you could have a pet anything what would it be?
I'd have a pet Dragon, because they're awesome and medieval and I could fly around the world on them.
Who would play you in the movie of your life and why?
I would love Zooey Deschanel to play me in a movie about my life because she's just so awesome and dorky at the same time! What's not to love about Zooey!
Have you ever been to Spain and if so, what did you like most about it?
I've never been to Spain unfortunately but it's definitely up there on my list of places to visit. I'd eat all the paella.
What's the wierdest thing about the Giraffe team that you’ve noticed since starting here?
The weirdest thing I've noticed about the Giraffe team is also the best thing, and that's your obsession with ping-pong aka table tennis! Haha!
What’s your favourite t-shirt cut?
My favourite t-shirt cut would have to be a crew neck/round neck? (is that what you call it..?) Can't be dealing with these v-necks, I'm not about that life.
Any dietary requirements we should be aware of?
No dietary requirements! I love all food.
All the food; duly noted. Where is the coolest place you've ever visited?
The coolest place I've ever visited is Dublin. It's an amazing city and everyone was so friendly!
If you won Olympic gold, what event would it be in?
I'd definitely be winning that gold in fencing. It's the only sport I can play!
Lastly, is this the way to Amarillo?
Every night I've been hugging my pillow, dreaming dreams of Amarillo!
