Busy as a bee she’s been, blogging for the benefit of various brands since becoming a brilliant, balanced addition to our team. Who’s this busy bee I boast of? Anne Daly. She’s our new content writer at Denamico, and she loves alliteration.
That one was for you, Anne.
Our clients are the beneficiaries of her writing, and so are we. Her ravenous curiosity combined with her knack for storytelling is a potent combination.
According to Anne, the penguin is her spirit animal. And over the course of her first few weeks here, we’ve discovered why. Behind a quiet and formal, tuxedo-like appearance lies a quirky and adventurous personality that thrives in crisp climates, such as here in Minneapolis.
Get to know a bit more about Anne and Denamico in the video below.
1. How would you describe your role?
I’m a content writer, which basically means that I tell the stories of a variety of businesses here in the Twin Cities in the most engaging, dynamic way possible. I get to the bottom of what’s exciting and unique about our clients, and then highlight those things in my writing.
2. How has Denamico helped you in your career development?
The opportunity to work with other motivated, creative people has been awesome. There’s a great balance here between having the freedom to develop ideas, and having the resources and other creative minds available to make your ideas as successful as possible.
3. What are 3 words to describe Denamico?
I would say Denamico is creative, collaborative, and collegial. I know they all start with “c”s. I can’t help myself. I love alliteration. And they’re all true.
4. Best vacation you’ve been on?
Last fall, I walked 110 kilometers, or about 70 miles, of the Camino de Santiago pilgrimage route across Northern Spain. We did it over 4 days, and one day we had to walk 25.9 miles to find a place to stay. So, I’ve basically walked a marathon.
5. What book did you read last?
I just finished The Storytelling Animal by Jonathan Gottschall. It’s about how stories shape individuals and societies, which fascinates me. Even if we’re not aware of it, we all have stories we tell ourselves - about who we are, who other people are, and how our world fits together. And this book asked really good questions about what purpose story serves, and how we can use it to shape the kind of society we want to have.
6. Tell us something about yourself that would surprise us.
I’m a triplet. So really, have you been watching me on this video, or my sisters? Just kidding, we’re fraternal. But that’s pretty fun.
