Inside the Capsule: Intern Spotlight on Drew

Get to know our marketing intern, Drew Harkman.

1. What brought you to Capsule, Drew?
My former roommate Hans Slade interned here over the Summer which prompted me to check you guys out.  It turned out that I was quite familiar with a lot of the brands you guys have worked with, so I always have kept an eye on Capsule since. I saw the posting to join the team here this Spring and jumped at the opportunity, now here I am!

2. Why are you interested in marketing?
I love to see how brands are able to connect and engage with their consumer base in fun and interesting ways. The brands who do it best often are able to create a symbiotic relationship with their fans and it always starts with their marketing.

3. What experience do you bring to Capsule?
Tons! But in all seriousness, I like to think that I bring a lot of experience from quite the variety of industries like Hospitality, Sports, Television, Print/Digital Journalism, and even a full-service Ad Agency. I’m a big people person, so I love collaborating whether it be with coworkers or clients.

4. Go-to karaoke song?
The YMCA, it usually gets the people going.

5. What do you when you’re not at work?
I’m usually riding my bike to places near and far around the cities. I also enjoy running outside, playing with my roommate’s dog, and perfecting my Wii Bowling skills.

6. Life motto?
Work hard, play hard, then work some more.

7. What are you passionate about?
Hawaiian shirts and everything they stand for.

8. Any hidden talents?
I was a professional Barista for six years (take that Hans), so I can make you a mean cup of coffee. I’m also an Eagle Scout so if you need help tying a knot or starting a fire, drop me a line.

9. Favorite brand?
Hamm’s Beer.  It’s more popular than you might think.
