Welcome: A Q&A With Major
I’m Major, and I’m beyond thrilled to launch my new site and to welcome you to my blog.
To get things going, I’ve conducted a Q&A with myself to share some background information. And I high-fived myself at the end.
Circle back weekly for new stories and send suggestions my way! And, if you catch me cruisin’ down Orlando Avenue sipping cold brew blasting NPR, wave at me!
Let’s ease into this…
Q: What’s your favorite color?
A: Grey or gray— whichever spelling you prefer is good with me. I know, it’s not the most popular color, but it’s a pretty solid neutral in my closet.
Q: Where are you from and what do you do for a living?
A: I’m a New York native turned avid Orlandoan. By day, I’m PR director at PR/creative agency in downtown Orlando, and at night, I operate Eat Project Pop, my organic kettle corn company.
Throughout my career, I’ve had the opportunity to work with consumer, travel, food, tech, health, and nonprofit brands throughout the country, and to plan some of the coolest events. I also love wellness, so check out my Instagram to follow my fitness and eating chronicles. Mostly eating, though.
Q: What are your favorite podcasts?
A: Welp, this list could get rather long, but here we go:
1A (NPR) by Joshua Johnson
Code Switch (NPR) by Gene Demby and Shereen Marisol Meraji
On Point (NPR) by Meghna Chakrabarti and David Folkenflik
Jesus & Jollof by Luvvie Ajayi and Yvonne Orji
Transformation Church by Pastor Michael Todd
Can you tell that I love NPR? I’ll spare you by not sharing the entire list. P.S. My best friend and I are launching a podcast later this year!
Q: What are some recent wins?
A: Fam, I got married on January 5, 2019. I could stop there because that’s huge, but I also purchased a new commercial popcorn machine that I have been believing that I would find for quite some time. And launching this site is icing on the cake for winning in Q1 of 2019. I’m in awe of how life is lining up.
Q: Favorite things to eat and drink?
A: Narrowing my selections down is challenging, but here are my choices:
Eat - Healthy Day: A bold, hearty salad | Cheat Day: Fries, baby!
Drink - Iced Coffee. Once a day, any day from Dandelion Communitea Cafe.
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: Someone recently asked me this, and I loved the way it allowed me to have an introspective moment. I discovered that having refreshing conversations with people just does it for me. To me, there’s nothing quite like stirring up aspirations and being reminded of what God has promised me, while in the presence of great company.
Q: What’s your favorite quote?
A: “There is no such thing as failure in life, only feedback.” - Pastor Patrick Ligon
